Check out the 33,00 square feet the 2013 Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet has to offer. Many bicycle shops and individual sellers with new, last years overstock, bicycles, frames, pedals, tires, tubes, shoes, outerwear ... or that one of a kind part to complete that rebuild or upgrade - come find a deal.

The popular Bike Corral will again be highlighted at the Expo. This is a special area where guests can place their item/s for sale and leave them to continue to shop throughout the exhibit. If the item is sold while the guest is gone, Trailnet collects the money and holds it until the end of the show.

This is an event to sell as a shop or individual, go to Trailnet.org for more information, a swap space, directions or what we are about.

Trophies awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place

The Classic Bicycle Show and Vintage Swap Meet has grown in the last 9 years to include different styles and likes, featuring antique and custom bikes from the 1890's to the present. There is nothing like coming in and seeing a bike that you had (or wish you had) when you were a kid and look at some of the history and workmanship of bike from the past to the present. The swap meet will be a place to find that much needed part to replace or recreate your old/new bicycle.

Bring your family and friends to look at the wide collection of bicycles at the "9th Annual Classic Bicycle Show & Swap Meet" you never know what will show up!

to show your bike you pay at the show. You only have to pre-register if your selling in the bike corral or a vendor.

yeah more classes would be good as it grows... kinda hard to compare the awesome cook bros with the beautiful hutch trickstar and 1987 gt pro freestyle .... wich were my personal favs...

I have a idea but will talk more before next year.
If you enter a bike, you need a "home base" to sit.
I 'll rent  two spaces next year at the classic bike show area.
And we can all hang , tell lies & argue over bike trivia !!
