An opportunity to buy a vintage ride - March 23rd
The 23rd Annual Seattle Old Bike Swap Meet and Show is coming up a week from this Sunday; the 23rd of March (7am - 1pm). The swap meet has moved from it's old location in Kent up to Shoreline (17177 Meridian Avenue North).
The rumor is that this event is a good place to get a good deal on a good variety of bikes, but especially old school Schwinn's and other vintage rides. If you like that older style of bike, this is the premiere opportunity to shop this year.
My friend JR picked up this vintage Schwinn cruiser at the Swap a few years ago for a little more than $100. I have to admit, when you feel this old steel cruiser roll you realize what a great value these old bikes are. They don't make em like they used to. Well actually they do, but have to pay an arm and a leg.
