Early Bird Swap Meet

I'm a little behind on posts. Last weekend was the Early Bird Swap Meet. Both my usual cohorts, Flathead Rob and Vaughn were out of town. Thankfully Nate was willing to stand in. Nate showed up ready...

The swap meet is huge. We moved with purpose and it still took the better part of 3 hours to get through it. There's not a lot of motorcycle stuff there so I left empty handed (I should have bought the $15 driving light I saw, it was cool). It rained hard all day and I didn't take many pictures. We met and talked to some super cool people. I talked to an older guy that flattracked Triumph's in the 60's and met a guy family operated a Triumph/Ariel in Tacoma in the 1940's-1950's. It was well worth going.
Vaughn would have wanted to rescue this one

This box cracked me up. Notice the 1:1 scale
Nate bought an HD book for $5 from this guy. I was pretty bummed to learn the Aeromacchi motor he had was sold before I could buy it and stash it in Rob's garage.
