Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
Had a good time today at the swap meet at Don Johle's Bike World in Garland, Texas today.
Saw lots of familiar faces selling bikes and parts and got to meet a few new folks today too.
Didn't sell a thing, but did make a trade with member Henry Morgan...my Raleigh PUB for his Nirve Switchblade.
Henry also worked out a deal with Don and now the BSA Paratrooper bike will be on permanent display in Don's shop.
Here are a few pics I took this morning...
Here's the raffle bike that's been in the for sale section for a month or so. They drew the name and it looks like the bike is headed to Chicago. Mark will announce the winner in the thread.
A shot of Don after taking a test ride on the Switchblade.
I've got plans for this bike....muuwaa ha ha ha ha.
The BSA Paratrooper...
Now that's cool.
You're right Randy...it was cool.
The bike really deserved to be in a public place so everyone could see it.
Would have been a shame to have it tucked away in the dark again.
I enjoyed spending the morning out there and getting to talk to you and the other guys.
Lots of good stuff out there, not too many sales taking place, that I saw at least.
I did OK selling small stuff and one bike. Not complaining at all. it was a good Swap IMHO.
Thanks for helping set it up.

As far as I remember, there were plenty spaces up front that were empty throughout the morning.
Also, just about everybody I spoke with had either sold quite a bit of stuff or had found some pretty good deals.
But hey, it's your opinion and your entitled to it.
Its great you guys have events to get people within the hobby together.Id love to see that many bikes at one time.Im kind of on my own in my area other than a friend 60 miles away who finds alot of bikes and a local friend who just waits to see what I get so he can get in on some stuff.
