Davenport Antique Bike Show and Swap Meet

Rode to the show today in Davenport, IA. This annual show is the largest in this area and draws vendors, from all over the midwest.

Lots of cool bikes, lots of junk and lots on interesting characters roaming the grounds. Most of this stuff I have no idea what it is, but I will post pics.

Met up with TooManyToys and his better half in the bike corral.



Saw this in the parking lot.



Mini Trails galore.



Somebody with too much time on their hands.




I'm not going to post all of these at once, because I keep getting booted.

This thing was built by a Peugout airplane engineer. 2400cc vtwin. It was used to motorpace, six days bicycle racers on velodromes. The chrome roller on the back is there so, when a rider would touch the front wheel to the roller it would spin and not dump the racer.



A sea of treasures.
