For the weeks prior to the meet, my mind was occupied with ideas on how I’d rebuild Rusty for Born Free 6. I already had in mind a specific look that I was going for but didn’t make any final decisions until after the swap meet.

Similar to the last event, I left SJ early and arrived at the meet just in time before the parking lot filled up.

From a quick glance, the meet definitely had more vendors than last time. I figured it was because of warmer weather. For this meet, I prepared myself just enough money to buy what I need only.

After about two hours of browsing and carefully searching for parts, I came home a happy camper. Found some parts that I can tweak and add to Rusty.

You meet the friendliest people at cycle swap meets. One of many reasons why I keep coming back aside from parts

Fancy looking bike

Unlike the last meet which was mostly dominated by Ironheads, this meet had more Shovels than Home Depot

Such a sweet looking scoot

I’m gonna end the post with Pop’s 1976 Shovelhead. This bike was stolen soon after I took this photo. If you look closely, you can see the lock on the ground instead of being locked on the rotor. If you see this bike please contact @moonsmc on Instagram and call the police. Spread awareness and help a brother find his ride.

Thank you for looking.
