2013 York AMCA swapmeet

For those of us living in North East, winter is long, riding is for the brave and foolish (at least until the trees start to bud again) so the January indoor swap meet in York Pennsylvania is a beacon of light when the nights are longer than the days. This particular weekend was jammed packed with events including James Hammerheads NYC Launch party for his custom V7 Guzzi, The International Motorcycle Show at the Javits Center, but after the Vegas auction last weekend, I decided to stick close to home and possibly spend lots of money - which is not hard to do if you're like me. 

Last year I had a ton of crap to sell, but after unloading a lot of the british spares I had on my friend over at Quaker City Motorworks this past fall, I really had a burning need to acquire versus purge. I have to say I'm proud of myself that I didn't pick up any more projects. I did score a 5 speed transmission for my future Triton build and a few cool t shirts, including one from my friends over at Urban Cycle Works and another from the Gary Nixon estate that was sold by number nine's close pal Bob Sholly. 

I've covered this swap for a number of years so i have nothing much to add - so here's a few pictures which I figure are at least worth a thousand words.
