The weather is turning cold and bike season is ending soon here in the Northeast (unless you break out the heated gear). All those projects on the bike you meant to get to last winter, but never did, can once again be moved to the front burner after a quick visit to the Keene Motorcycle Swap Meet on September 26. The swap meet is held twice a year at the Fairgrounds in Troy, New Hampshire, just south of Keene. It is an all day, rain or shine event and several hundred vendors and parts replacers spread their wares out on blankets and on tables hoping not to have to re-pack them for the trip home. Project bikes are a recurring theme at Keene and there are dozens, if you haven’t got enough projects already. Yeah, there are lots of Harley parts that were unbolted and are fairly useless to anyone else, but I have purchased authentic Indian tools, Triumph restoration parts and decent cheap leathers at Keene in the past. If you have a plan of attack and a punch list for pieces needed, you can be in and out in a few hours. If you go without a plan, chances are you’ll leave with something anyway; at least a dog dish full of French fries, politically incorrect helmet sticker or a Support Hells Angels t-shirt.
