Motorcycle swap meet at PIR

I am planning on going but what should I expect from the swap meet? Should I bring a briefcase full of cash or is it a "u-pull it" type of place where a nickel and a dime will get you a wheelbarrow full of goodies. It is still scheduled for April 5th thru 7th?

Check the "2013 PNW Motorcycle Calendar of Events" link at the top of the page. Can't tell ya more about it since I've not been there before either. Sounds cool though.

Expect a lot of car parts...................actually the one at PIR is called the "Auto Swap Meet"

And the one at the Expo Center is just called the "Portland Swap Meet"

Both will have bikes, parts, tools and other stuff, but it's mostly automotive type stuff.
If you have an old muscle car, 4X4, antique, classic or are building a Rat Rod, it's the place to go.
The good deals have been harder to come by in the last 5 or so years, but I have found some really good deals on bike parts and accessories, but they are far and few in between.
I'll be hanging out at stall 2352 (on the west end of the track) with some buds Thursday, Friday and maybe Saturday. Stop on by if ya make it.
