There was another excellent turn out at the VMCCWA swap meet on Sunday 30th June 2014.
A group from the SIVA club rode down to the show. We had an NSU Super Max, Royal Enfield 500 Bullet and two Ariel Leaders
Although not part of the official display, our bikes did draw a crowd.
Ariel Leader's are pretty rare here, so having two together was pretty special. My Leader is an early 58 without any extras; Richard's is a 63 model with all the fruit, including panniers, original indicators, and Smith's clock.
The swap meet had a wide variety of bits and pieces on sale.
The vintage bike display.
A Douglas and an Indian
1938 DKW RT200
An immaculate 1931 Ariel Four Square. Probably the best in show.
This year there was an interesting display of American flat tankers. In the foreground is a Yale.
A veteran Pope with all its patina
A veteran BSA and an unusual veteran Emblem
The Emblem was another early veteran I've never heard of before.
Richard and I enjoyed a great ride on the Ariels. They both ran really well - of course!!
