how about an ebay link ??

and to answer your question, I saw this post on another board by a friend (Brad) who went :

"Dateline, Iola Wis : Iola swap meet report

What a fucking waste of time joke. Anybody who thinks this is a "great swap meet that makes Davenport look like a burp" is a fucking idiot.

The amount of parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles in the whole thing was dwarfed by what Terry himself brings to Davenport. Seriously. And Terry at least brings quality used or N O S stuff - not stock take off or crashed bike shit.

There were a couple nice Triumphs for sale, and a few Triumph parts, but not much in that line either.

Unless of course you are in the market for clapped out honda or suzuki dirtbike stuff - then it would be heaven. Oh well, live and learn.

The show part did have some nice of everything in it - from old Indian singles, through the knuckle sidecars, and some cool Triumph and Norton bikes.

but, there is a rule about not going home from an auction or a swap meet without a purchase.......so I bought this



It's a 65 BSA A50B - which means it is a 500 cc competition model. It's a little rough, but mostly there, has a title, and has compression. It looked so sad there surrounded by all that junk, I just had to do it. And only 6 dead presidents. I know some of you would rather shower in prison than spend 600 for a BSA, but I'm just a tad left of center up here in cheese land, eh !"
