Vendors from around Indiana and beyond (we met a guy from Columbus, Ohio) bring their bicycle-related odds and ends and slap them on a table, for a small fee of course. I took some pics with my camera phone for you. (Isn't technology amazing?!)
They were crowding around this table like a school of piranhas. The afternoon was coming to a close so the vendors were wheelin' and dealin'. This definitely worked out to our advantage.
Not only did they have a myriad of bikes and bike parts, they also had a fine assortment of vintage, cycling-related tees and jerseys.
As we purused the swap meet, we were keeping an eye peeled for a lil something to fix up for the coming Spring. I think we were both keeping our expectations low. However, in the second row of tables, we stumbled upon a lovely little frame - a robin's egg blue Schwinn World Sport. The tag said $20, but when the vendor saw us looking it over he immediately said he would take $10. The frame was just my size! After a couple moments of contemplation, we realized we couldn't pass this up. Before we left we also found a pair of Specialized handlebars for $2 and a stem for $5. What a secondhand happening!
Work has already begun on this beauty! And just yesterday we discovered that the frame was released in 1985! The year of my birth! Meant to be.
I think I am going to look at least that good.
Spring, here we come!
