Swapmeet: Vehikel 2011

I went to a swap meet with Vincent yesterday. Expectations weren't too high, since the last edition was a bit of a disappointment (high entree fee, not many sellers and very high prices), but this edition was great.

This would be a great headlight for a steam punk bike....
Lots of junk, but very interesting junk none the less.
Push bike with a shaft drive. Sweet!
Lots of tanks to chose from
A Heinkel motor scooter
Ariel scrambler.... I want one!
This kind of quality just can't be found anymore on anything that leaves a factory these days.
Lots of handlebars, very cheap. So we bought a few to see what looks best on the SR500
Old school instrument for checking batteries.
Boxes and boxes full of tacho's.....
Very cool fuel consumption meter. I guess it was vacuum driven?
1937 Adler push bike with 3 gears. It had wooden fenders with a small logo of St Christopher on them (the saint that protects travelers).

In the end we came home with a new brake switch for my CB, air filters for Vincent's Ducati and a lot of stuff for our next project, the SR500: 2 Sets of handlebars, a fuel tank, decompression lever, tail light and 2 headlights. All for very low prices. Nice.
