PVR Swap Meet and Vintage Bike Show - January 28th

The Potomac Vintage Riders are hosting their annual swap meet and vintage bike show this Sunday January 28, 2018 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm in the UTZ Arena at the York Fairgrounds in York, Pa.


This show has grown in popularity over the years and features bikes like the above Honda Elsinore DG replica and so many more. They've had to expand into a larger facility at the fairgrounds due to the explosion and interest in the vintage bike scene in recent years.

Here you can enjoy and talk of days gone by of those bikes you used to own and possibly even pick one up to relive those days again. There will be hundreds of bikes for sale, parts and accessories both new and used and just a fun day out with your moto pals.


Last years vintage bike show was over the top with more classic iron in one place then I have ever seen. Some of these classic rides came from the Broom Works Museum in Baltimore Md and some were entered by private collectors. The other really cool thing I liked about the show was all of the vintage bikes available for purchase, everything from Mini Trail 50's to Bultaco Astros and so much more in between. Not to mention milk crates full of vintage parts and memorabilia.

We hope to see you at this years show coming up this weekend in York, Pa. The fairgrounds offer easy access from points north and south located just a few miles from Interstate 83 which runs north and south and intersects with the Pa Turnpike.

After the show if you still feel the need to see more vintage bikes from days gone by you may want to pay a visit to the Broom Factory near the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. Come see four rooms full of the bikes we cut our teeth on housed in a historic museum that originated as a broom factory in the early 1900's. 

From 1901 - 1989 the majority of the brooms sold in the Mid Atlantic region were manufactured right in this building. The space has been re purposed into modern office space and of course a vintage motorcycle museum.

Open to the public on Thursday evenings from 6 - 10 pm or by appointment by contacting Mike Slate at 443.986.1420. It's a great place to host club parties or maybe even a ride in. Dealers take note and maybe arrange a customer appreciation ride on a Saturday to share an awesome experience with your customers both old and new.
