I'm about halfway in between Steve in Peoria and Chicago. I've thought about having a similar event here in LaSalle but have had a few concerns. First, I'm not sure how many people will travel 90 minutes out from Chicago to LaSalle. Second, while a vintage bike FAN, I'm no expert. So, I'm probably not the best guy to organize a vintage fest.

In any case, I'd be happy to help anyone who wants to put on such an event.
