As we wandered around the show we saw a few more cool looking vintage bikes.

|(another Royal Enfield)|
|( Honda and Yamaha were well represented)|
|(a cute little Honda 90 - I loved this little bike)|
There was even a Simplex Automatic Motorcycle circa 1956ish on display.
And a few scooters for the scooter fans out there.
And my favorite of the show - a 1960 Triumph Speed Twin Model 5TA. According to the write-up on display this was a rarer bike than the 350cc 3TA version. The bodywork was not so popular in the USA and was often referred to as the upside down 'bathtub' model. It was also nice to read that the bike is in use and not just a show piece.

Once we were finished wandering around the vintage bikes we strolled along the perimeter where the swap meet tables were set up. The following bikes/items were all for sale in the swap meet.

|(side car anyone?)|
And finally one of the booths set up wasn't selling anything , but were advertising their vintage off-road riding club and had bikes on display. The bikes were parked really close together except for this one so it was easy to photograph.
On our way out of the show Troubadour pointed and said "look at that husky". I immediately started looking for a Husqvarna motorcycle. Much to my surprise, this is what I found.
And if it works I also grabbed a short video of them riding away.
