PVR Vintage Swapmeet and Bike Show - Recap

PVR Annual Swap Meet and Bike Show
Potomac Vintage Riders
Jan. 26, 2020
York, Pa

Every January the Potomac Vintage Riders bring their annual gathering to the York, Pa Fairgrounds and year after year this show continues to grow.

Working as one, the AHRMA Mid Atlantic Vintage Cross-Country Series teams up with the gang from the Mid Atlantic Vintage Bikes at the Broom Factory to put on this great off-season event.

Saturday night before the show the series honors its champions for the year at their annual awards banquet. A special thanks to all the volunteers that make all the events and awards banquet happen. Good food, good fun and bench racing was enjoyed by all.

On Sunday morning the UTZ Arena at the York Fairgrounds opens to a full hall of mostly vintage and some modern parts and bike vendors. Every year the crowd grows with many looking for those hard to find parts and those two-wheel gems from days going by.

There is a vintage bike show that’s second to none that’s hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Bikes from the Broom Works in Baltimore, MD. In talking with Mike Slate one of the shows promoters he shared that at least 80 of the 100 entries were new to the show this year and the number was most likely more than that. 

This year’s People’s Choice award went to Steve Dance from Jarrettsville, MD featuring his 
1951 twin piped Triumph Trophy.

Another really cool piece was this 1985 Rotax powered Tiger 200 trike
displayed by Blueline Graphics.
