vintage bike swap meet @Richmond station


Sandwiched between Abbortsford Cycles and the Richmond station overpass,the bi annual vintage bike swap meet is fast becoming my favourite. It's a huge hit amongst the ancient, bike part hoarder crowd.ie me. Pretty much anything goes here,from a Sturmey Archer 3 speed,clapped out freewheeels to wooden rims which have seen better days.There's always a most excellent display of restored and wonderful treadlies.(of which more later) And of course you have to pass through the totally fantastic Abbortsford Cycles on the way in,and out.


How could you not love a bamboo Dursley Pedersen?
