The 80's are back!!!! At Trail Head Cyclery's 7th Annual Spring Swap Meet

That's right folks, we're pulling up our socks and donning the neon again! Swap Meet Madness is here! It is time to get some cash for those stock wheels. Or that saddle you decided should go to hell? Sell it. The stock handlebar & stem poking out of a box in your garage? Sell it. Oh, man, I need an 8speed cassette. Find it. My girl should have a cute old cruiser. Find it. Looking for an old 3-speed Bendix wheel? I've seen 'em before...:aureola:

Where: Corner of Union & Camden Avenues, under the Merry-Go-Round at the Cambrian Park Plaza. (San Jose/Los Gatos for you outatowners )
When: Sunday March 29th, Late for the regular swap crowd, effing early for the rest of us Set up starts at 7am, :sleep: Buying starts at 8am, usually done by 1pm.
Why: We love the 80's. And we have dated new stuff to un-load cheap. We know you do too. :23:
Who: Everybody is welcome. Old school, new school, never finished school, party school...
Green: FREE for all buyers!! Sellers pay $20 per vehicle. Huge spaces to spread out all that stuff. :cool:

This Swap is really fun, and now that we are back on the corner we will have Great drive by visability!!! Rumor has it that ROLLER GIRL is coming back for this event. Nice.

No reservations, just show up when you want. We'll collect seller's fees after things are in full swing.

OUR NEW SHOP IS OPEN, so come on in and check our our new digs! Storewide savings as well, so the deals are great inside and out :cornut:

Frequent questions;
Q: What if just have a frame to sell. Do I have to rent a space?
A: :nonod: Strap that thing to your back and cruise the swap free. :thumbsup:

Q: What if I only have a few items and can't carry them or don't want to?
A: Find a buddy to share a vehicle/booth. That way you can split the $20 and take turns selling & shopping.

Q: How early can I start setting up?
A: OK, you guys kill me. 7am :sleep: :sleep: :sleep: (5am set up guy? You know who you are. Park where you want to set up, but wait until we get there to be sure that space is valid, thanks man)

Whaaaa haaa haa ha. That's funny shiet. I dunno, mabey lots of those things are being offed? Dang, that's funny.

"hey you mentioned you've some 80's stuff you want to unload? I'm looking to build up my ALAN frameset (produced in the 80's with 126 spacing), hope you've all the parts I need."

That's funny too,,, Nah, this isn't Slough's shop full of rad vintage 80's parts. I host two swap meets a year to make sure I don't end up with out dated stuff clogging the shop. However, some other dude will probably show up with all the parts you don't need! :thumbsup: Man, did you check out some of those photos on my site? Some crazy cool stuff shows up every time. Never ceases to amaze me, like the hogged out hi-flange Suzue hubs I saw last Fall (narrow track style), or the wooden sew-up hoops, those were cool.

Rad. Like I'll totally see you there, ok? ok? Rad.
