The Delta Optimist April 19, 2013
The 28th annual Classic and Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet will feature Harley Davidson’s rugged utility three-wheeled motorcycle, the “Servi-Car.”
The event will take place later this month at the South Delta Recreation Centre in Tsawwassen.
The Harley Davidson Servi-Car dominated the industry at its peak with a variety of uses from police motorcycles to meter maids. The icon of vintage motorcycling featured a 45 cubic inch (750cc) engine that was also a favourite of delivery companies and car dealers. Most Servi-Cars acted as traveling billboards, sporting the “Ad” fender skirts that Harley Davidson sold for the model.
At this year’s event, a 1962 Harley Davidson Servi-Car will be displayed among the marquee motorcycles.
Owners of all makes and styles of classic and vintage motorcycle are invited to participate in the Show ‘N Shine, and awards will be presented in several classes, including “Best in Show” and “People’s Choice.”
“The Show ‘N Shine provides a unique opportunity for local restorers to show off their skills. This year promises to be the best display yet,” said organizer Todd Copan.
The Classic and Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet is set for Sunday, April 28.
Described as the largest classic and vintage meet in Western Canada, the event will feature more than 150 tables of hard parts and the West Coast’s top classic motorcycles from a variety of makes.
Swap meet doors open at 10 a.m. Admission is $10 and kids under 12 are free.
