Here are some photos from the swap meet:

A couple of bikes for sale from the guy set up next to me. The Enfield interests me, but I smacked myself across the face and said, "No more bikes!" It started, ran, and idled easily.

This BSA was for sale for $2750. I spoke to the owner as he loaded it onto his pickup. He told me there were no takers

If I remember correctly, (and I may not), it was a WWII James.

It was full of cheap used British junk. It wasn't that large, but as current British bike events go, it was pretty good. Oh wait, there are hardly any more British bike events. It looked to me like the parts vendors/hoarders like to move these parts around amongst themselves in a big circle. I sold off a few things, but not much.

The guy next to me had lots of stuff. He showed me a nice set of Commando yokes he had just bought for $10. That impressed me.

I wasn't really looking to buy anything, so didn't pay that much attention.

I did buy a new handlebar set for $20.

Damn Wish I had been there... Nice bikes.... Definitely a good price on the OIF BSA.... Maybe its a good thing I wasnt there.... What were the other prices like ? Mostly the BSA motor and the RE and the pre unit in front of it? If you took the time to inquire ....

I didn't ask the prices as I wasn't interested in buying any of it.
