Subject: [CR]T-town report

As already reported by others, T-town was not as good as last fall's, but then last fall's was the best I have attended for the variety and amount of vintage goods. The spring usually is less, and the weather dampened and chilled some from attending I am sure (On the drive home, however, I discovered how close we were to total wash out. About fifty miles west of T-town, I encountered downpours significant enough to have many cars pulled off to the side of the road and that continued sporadically all the way into Ohio.)

There were some interesting bikes there, I thought. Viking path racer, Billy Rounds with an interesting Carlton (is Billy Rounds of this list? If so, could you please contact me? Or if not, does someone know how to contact him on line?), the Bilenky bikes were cool, previously mentioned Masi, Bob Jackson, and Sam's array of different bikes.

As Mike Schmidt mentioned, Larry had the club seat accommodations for the day. His space provided the rendezvous spot for CR's and others.

All in all for me, a good time, chatting up with Larry, Wayne, Mike, Charlie, Kevin, Dan, and others. I bought nothing, but sold a Legnano decaled Frejus.

Always fun and onto the Cirque in a month.
