If you're in New York City, check out the Monson Swap meet it Mass. March 30th. They come from all along the eastern seaboard and the prices are good.

Copiague is spelled "Copake".

SWAP MEETS:   Bike Swap Jan. 20th 2008 Butler PA(near Pittsburgh) posted by: ralph on 12/27/2007 at 1:01:11 PM
coming up in less than a month.
excellent swap meet, especially if you are looking to sell stuff, as I came there to buy all the road bike=lightweight stuff you have. Campagnolo, Huret, Simplex, BSA, Frejus, Paramount, Rene Herse, Alex Singer, or anything else cool.

there is a special deal too at the days inn, where it is held. $50 a room, if reservations are made before Jan. 1st. must also state that you are coming there for the show.
Days Inn in Butler 724-287-6761.

Butler is just north of Pittsburgh.
the Days iNn has an indoor pool and a hot tub. and on Sat. night before the swap, a bar with a Dj and a dancefloor.

MISC:   Any Info posted by: John on 12/23/2007 at 5:55:32 PM
Just purchased a bike from some person in the U.P. Guy said that hr bought the bike in England in 1944. The bike was spray painted by his son in the late 60s. The head badge is a metal "bird" looks like a Falcon. It has an external 3 speed with a "Fichtal & Sachs" derillaur and a "Nagura" top tube shifter. Would love to start a restoration but need info on colors and markings, anyone have advice on where to find information? Thanks for any help.
