    Only 4 weeks away !!!
    I spoke to quite a bunch of folks today, who I saw at the Hurricane Coasters Show & Swap meet earlier today..... and passed out flyer for this Swap Meet.
    It sounds like a good number of folks from the Carolinas will be heading to Commerce, GA! That's GREAT news!
    Mark your calendars! Hope to see YOU here on March 3rd! Cheers!! CCR Dave

    Hello Todd! >>>> SURE, I can make that happen! I don't have the workforce to pull-off Awards for Show Bikes..... BUT with over 250+ other vendors there for the Cars, and Motorcycles, and everything else you could name ....... There will be PLENTY of folks there to check out the SHOW Bikes !!
    IF you or anybody else is just coming to Display a Bike in the Show Tent ....... that would be $6.00 at the main entrance gate.......
    Otherwise ....... IF you are getting a $20 space OR $30 Early Bird space (ALL-the-space-you-need!) You can just wheel it down to the End Cap (2nd LANE away from the Grassy Area!! Looking forward to seeing you there! CCR Dave

    Sounds great, I'll bring a couple bikes just for show. Not looking for awards or fame, just wanted to hang out with some really cool people and talk bikes. Thank you Dave for taking the time to put together such a great bike event so close to home.

    Old Skool BMX Fans and Early Daze MTB/Klunkers Fans should be happy about this Post!!
    I've been in contact over the last few days with calls or in-person conversations with a number of folks inquiring about coming to sell and/or coming to buy in these categories .......
    I have CL ads in surrounding markets for this Pedal to the Metal Event. And from those ads I've been contacted by MOMBAT's Sam Archer who could possibly be bringing a truck and trailer down from Statesville, NC. The Musuem of Mountain Bikes is thinning out some excess Early MTB and other relics that don't quite fit into their Museum known as MOMBAT. I talked with the guys from Charlotte area's CYCO Inc. who specialize in Muscle Bikes and Old Skool BMX.
    I met with Justin of Pork Chop BMX in Cartersville, GA today ..... and while it's doubtful they will set-up to sell .....they may make a trip to buy some Old Skool BMX goodies. The Western NC area along with Charlotte area seems to be coming on strong with the relatively easy 2 1/2 - 3hr trip to Commerce.
    I've been getting a number of callers from those areas planning to be here.
    My gut feeling is this Event should surpass the consistent 40+ Vintage Bike Vendors this March!
    I know that TN and ALA and SC will be represented here, as well ....... I hope YOU are making plans to be here!
    Plenty of Motels at exit # 149 at I-85 to stay just minutes away for the Very Early Sat morning start.
    It's getting CLOSE! I feel the FUN in the air! ......... Cheers! CCR Dave ............(Picture Below taken at the March 2017 Event here)

    Two weeks away for the Best Swap Meet in the Southeast! Be reminded of the early time to get thru the gates to set up, its only an extra $10 and you are most assured of getting a better place with other bike vendors. This is gonna be great, looking forward to seeing everyone there!:)
