    Time to start making those Pre-Spring Swap-Meet plans!
    Please join us here in Commerce, Georgia for the 5th Edition of the "PEDAL-TO-THE-METAL" Swap Meet......
    We are averaging about 40 Vintage Bike Vendors per Event.... and surrounded by 200+ Swap meet Vendors of Auto/Motorcycle/Truck Parts & Gas/Oil Signs and man-cave what-nots and what's best is 100's of "spectators" (buyers)
    A great turn-out of Vintage Bike fans come to this Event from as far away as Ohio, Alabama, Tennessee, and both Carolinas .... even Louisiana was represented one time.
    Hope we can draw from Florida one of these times.
    Please, mark you calendar and make plans for this great Swap Meet!! Cheers!! CCR Dave

    **** PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER FOR THE FLYER *** I'm unable to upload it here at this time ......Thank you!

    What if I guaranteed some beautiful vintage girls bikes for your wife to choose from for a Special Birthday present!!
    Would that get you and her here ??
    Maybe consider a little Road Trip to Charlotte 02/02 ??
    And/or I believe you normally go to Get A Grip in Cleveland TN ... correct??
    Hope to see you at at least one of those
    Cheers! CCR Dave

    GET-A-GRIP is coming! Yes it is a 3 hour drive for us but well worth the drive! Always a ton of stuff to buy and always a lot old stuff and truck loads of parts. We will have our 2019 shirt with us just in case you want to get it early and wear it to the show on March 23, 2019 in Cleveland. Dave goes way out of his way to in sure we all have a great time.

    WEATHER UPDATE! There is now a 40% chance of "Occasional showers" .... WARMER Now -morning start Low 50's with high Mid 60's

    Important notes: This is a "Rain-or-Shine" Outdoor Event !!
    ***VERY RARELY does this Event get postponed (Unless its 100% Chance of Saturation and/or Thunder Storms)***
    ~~~ There will be plenty of Vendors with EZ-up TENTS to duck-under IF it does rain a short spell.....
    ~~~ Bring some TARPS for the protection of your valuable items
    ~~~ Bring a Rain Poncho for yourself
    ~~~ and the math I learned in School tells me 40% is LESS THAN 50/50 !! ( SO odds are still in our favor! )

    I say ....Go For It !! I believe there will still be a HUGE Turn-out !! ..... See you there! CCR Dave
