The 32nd Annual Ann Arbor / Saline Classic Bicycle Show and Swap Meet will host more than 220 dealers. Last year's show included more than 7,000 classic, vintage and collectible bikes.
Among the features of the show:
• Show bikes: Typically, 50 to 75 bicycles are entered into 10 categories and the public votes for its favorites. Awards are presented in such categories as Best Unrestored, Best Lady’s, Best Motorized Bike, and more.
• Classic Bike of the Year Award: Judged event for best restored and best preserved bikes.
• A mini-bike show and swap meet.
• An auction at 11:30 a.m.: Anyone who thinks they may have a valuable or collectible bike can put it on the block for only $10 and let the crowd decide its value. If no one exceeds the owner’s asking price the bike goes back to the owner and they’ll get $5 back. The result is an appraisal from the crowd for $5.
The show takes place 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor / Saline Road. Admission: $3 admission (kids under 10 free). Parking is free. For more information, see the show's website.
