The show within the annual Ann Arbor Show formerly known as the Rat Rod Bike Show is now known as the Custom Bike Show. Its size will be expanded and there will be two classes: Custom Bikes and Rat Rod Bikes. The show is sponsored by Ol' Skool Rodz magazine and there are plans to cover the show for a feature in the magazine. Be there!

I don't really want to get a table, but if anyone has room at theirs for a half dozen bikes or so we can split the cost or? Never been to one of these....are the prices/atmosphere similar to a car swap meet?

It's the same process Dave, everyone selling has something we all " need". Just dicker with people, there's also a corral for complete bikes. You pay $10 to put them there, if they don't sell you get $5 back.

Aside from that, I've bought parts for $1 that are worth $20 and I've over paid for stuff because I needed it.

Of course everyone is willing to trade, so maybe carry some smalls around with you.

Oh and if you still have a certain frame, bring it.

Can trade up, down or sideways.

I'm still interested in that frame for sure, it won't work for my wife's build; but I like it.
I can't help you with the debutante, but between memory lane and Ann Arbor; I think you'll do well.
