I’ll be coming down from Ohio. Looking forward to picking up my freshly-painted KZ900 bodywork from BDs Cycle.

I'm planning it for next year.
Can someone recommend a hotel, that is located where I can take secondary roads to and from the event. I'll be riding around on a 200cc bike and want to avoid any roads over 55mph.

Awesome place!   I will post some pics!  Was only able to go on Sunday as I had my family with and we were visiting relatives 2 1/2 hours away in Tennessee.
A few pics of Allan Millyard creations and a original unrestored 1974 Z1 900.

Swap meet was fantastic (wish I had more money!) I bought an original Z1 seat with the black foam which was on 73 Z1's and early 74's Im told.
I was told the guy was asking $1500 for it earlier in the week and I got it for less than a fifth of that price (I think I was in right place at right time on Sunday as swap meet vendors were packing up and going home).  Also got an original Oiler tank for my early 74 project.

I remember bumping into "Milly" a few years back at a petrol station near his home, he was riding his V10 Viper engined monster !! A nicer more unassuming guy you could not wish to meet - what a legend

Cool mini bike, I built this old Duck / Wren about 6-7 yrs. ago. Medium Ford Blue left over paint.

I usually wish I had more money at swap meets.

You are 100% correct: anything they haven't sold will go back home and a lot of them will make really good deals rather than repack everything. The drawback is sometimes the good stuff will be gone, but not all the time.
