For a large portion of the 40,000 enthusiasts who attend Vintage Motorcycle Days each year, the swap meet is the primary attraction. Covering nearly 80 acres and hosting over 800 individual vendors, the VMD swap meet is one of the largest motorcycle swap meets in the nation, and surely the most diverse.
From early American project bikes to iconic ’80s and ’90s sportbikes, from’70s and ’80s motocrossers to all the classic minibikes many of us grew up with back in the day, you’re bound to find the parts, memorabilia, or complete motorcycles you’re looking for at this event. And the bikes are just the beginning! The stories of people stumbling onto something they just have to have — and then trying to find a way to get it hauled home to one of the coasts, or Montana, or New Mexico — are the stuff of legend. Look hard enough and you’re likely to find someone with room in their trailer from where you’re going. Come with cash, too, although more and more folks are carrying card machines these days.
Many of us have gotten lost in those seemingly never-ending lanes of legendary mechanical loveliness, and let us tell you, there are far worse ways to spend a day.
Become a Vendor
Vendors are able to present for sale their vintage motorcycles, motorcycle parts, tools, toys, apparel, accessories and so much more to tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts in attendance at VMD. Vendors can also purchase vendor camping, allowing you to stay closer to your swap meet display. Vendors must also purchase tickets to enter VMD; the cost of entry is not included in the booth or camping prices.
Swap meet booths are currently in a preregistration period for those who purchased booths last year. Vendors who purchased a booth last year can reserve their same spot again for the 2024 Vintage Motorcycle Days. Open registration will begin in the spring of 2024. See below for booth costs and booth details.
