That seems like a nasty rabbit hole to get stuck in... :dirtdog:

If you like 70s and 80s MX and Enduro bikes, its pretty amazing. Very, very few street bikes. I went a few years for the first time, and thought it was awesome. There are usually a bunch of beautifully restored bikes--CZs, Huskys, Maicos, Rickmans, etc. It was also a big swap meet, with everything from bikes, to basket cases, to parts for sale. There were a lot of trucks and trailers in the parking lot with bikes for sale. I'm going and hopefully not buying anything. If you rode/raced in the 60s, 70s, or 80s, its pretty cool

I haven't thought about it.
Deadline passed and I don't see anything for "bike corral" only.


Edit --TR35 will be in SMC stall. I'll be there Sunday in the PM.

I got a look inside yesterday. Lots of cool bikes. A very nice old school GS collection.

I went by today and looked around. There were a few CZs, a few really nicely done Maicos, not many Huskys (my favorite), a number of older and newer trials bikes, and pretty much everything else you can name. Lots and lots of parts. I met a couple of friends there who had never been--they were amazed. Cool event.

I was selling, not buying. I did find two more Beta TR's. lot's of newer bikes for sale, gear, tires, etc. Not just vintage stuff. Kind of like a yard sale for moto stuff.
