Lai­d­ley Swap Meet – a good one

Old Bike Australasia - - CLASSIC COB -

Lai­d­ley Swap on the 29/30 Oc­to­ber saw good weather dur­ing the day but it sure did pour down with heavy rain around 2 am or there­abouts on the Satur­day. At least an inch and half, pos­si­bly more, but the day turned out OK. There was a good roll up of traders with some 230 or so there who, with the ex­cep­tion of one, are per­sons of good re­pute and could be trusted to do the right thing by buy­ers. Ap­prox­i­mately 2,200 buy­ers, most of whom were present again on the Sun­day when there was a Show and Shine with tro­phies awarded for the win­ners of var­i­ous cat­e­gories. The Lucky Gate prize, a 1950 350 G Model Royal En­field, was won by a lo­cal club mem­ber Gary ‘Bluey” Hen­der­son. This ma­chine had been well re­stored by an­other club mem­ber Keith Shep­herd.
