Cloverdale – The premier event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada, the 31st Annual Classic & Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet and Show ‘n Shine takes place this year on: Sunday April 23rd at the Cloverdale Exhibition Grounds in Cloverdale, Surrey, BC. (Doors open at 10:00am)
The annual Classic and Vintage Swap Meet has become a calendar fixture for motorcycle enthusiasts from all over North America. The new venue has been especially popular with vendors, exhibitors and show visitors alike. Owners of all makes and styles of classic and vintage motorcycles are invited to enter the Show ‘n Shine, and awards will be presented in ten different classes, including Best in Show and People’s Choice.
Featured motorcycle in this year’s Show ‘n Shine will be a 1917 Harley-Davidson , to mark the celebration of 100 Years of Harley-Davidson motorcycles being sold by in Canada. Deeley Motorcycles of Vancouver was the first Harley-Davidson dealer, signing an agreement with the factory in 1917. Fred Deeley Sr. opened his retail business in Vancouver in 1914 and was already selling Triumph motorcycles. This 1917 Model F was bought in the 1980’s from collector Grant Bud, owner of Prairie Harley-Davidson, and a 1920’s BC licence plate was still attached to the fender when it arrived in Nanaimo. Owner Joe Drociuk spent several years restoring the motorcycle, sourcing parts form as far as Sweden and Australia, in an era before the internet!
