I'll be leaving at 2am in the morning for the 870 mile drive.
Hope the weather holds up, but looks to be a rainy week-end in Davenport

I live here in the QC. Every year I miss it. It is fun to see the old bikes riding around town in the days before the swap meet starts.

Going to be in CO this year.

That's an early AAA badge. There should be a membership number under that washer (probably damaged when the hole was drilled though).

Just got back from the Chief Blackhawk swap meet in Davenport as well. No big success on parts and much rain and sloppy weather to contend with. Was able to pick up a couple of Suzuki tiddlers though. One came from Utah the other from Ohio. They share many parts even though one is a step through and the other is a standard bike.
They look like they should be Brother and Sister or at least a his and hers cruisers.
Here's some pics taken right after unloading with no cleanup done yet.



The red one is a 1965 M31 "Suzi" with 3spd auto. It was a direct competitor of the Honda C100. It is 55cc's of pure torque



The white one is a 1964 or 65 "Collegian" (still working on identifying it) Model MD or M10 not completely sure yet. It is a 50cc 4 speed manual bike that would have been marketed to match up with the Honda C110.



Both bikes are very complete, right down to the carb cover and chain guards. I thought it very odd to find such rare machines that are similar at the same show and from two different sellers. I think I'll just get them running good (the white one was able to start but needs the usual) and do a lot of polishing only, since they are dent free but with a few scratches here and there. The white one, coming from the wrong side of the country does have rusty rims, but already have a front replacement.
