Owners of Italian and Italian-inspired bikes will have an opportunity to showcase them at this year’s Classic Lightweight Bike Show. Due to popular demand the Show will run both days of Seattle Bicycle Expo, March 12 and 13. Last year’s show attracted 120 bikes from all over the world, and the 8,000+ Expo attendees got to see an eyeful of the most exotic bikes on the planet in one place.
To be part of the fun, download the application form online and mail it in with your $10 check (this covers your weekend show ticket). You can bring as many bikes as you want – the more the merrier!
The theme this year is Italian, but we welcome English, French, American and other classic bikes too, so bring in whichever bikes you want. As a guideline, for this show classic bikes are pre-indexing road bikes, usually made before 1984. While we respect and admire the classic American balloon tire bikes, this is a show for lightweight bicycles only.
Load in for bikes is Friday afternoon or Saturday morning before opening. Bring a bike stand if you’ve got one as we’ll have a limited supply. And if you’d like to chat it up with other classic bike owners, there will be a no-host dinner for all exhibitors at Pike Brewery on Saturday night, 7 p.m.
