I fucking love swap meets, fuck you ebay, yes fuck you! Swappen is where it's at! Meeting all these old crusty bikers, hearing great story's, and buying parts from real people. Getting to hold the part you are about to buy, hearing the story behind it and getting it for a fair price. Me and Ashley drove down to Skadget on Sat, sailed through the boarder and walked around in a muddy field looking at motorcycle shit for a few hours. Ashley was excited to talk to this old guy for about an hour, about old Ford 12 spoke cast 15inch rims. This guy new his shit, and his hole deal was wheels, his life was wheels, depressing and really cool at the same time. I scored an old suitcase with sturgis stickers on it from the 70's that looked like it had fallen of the back of every bike it had traveled on.
The Vancouver swap was great. In proper swap form, we all met at Duffins in the morning and then hit the road. Always good to see all of the crew at swap time...i only took a few photos. TL
