Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts are about to descend upon Cloverdale for a classic and vintage swap meet and show ‘n shine.

The Cloverdale Agriplex plays host to visitors from across the province Sunday who will be checking out vintage and classic American, British, European and Japanese parts and bikes.

There will be more than 100 vendor booths indoors, and a car show outside at the 29th annual Classic and Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet and Show ‘n Shine, which makes the move from Tsawwassen to Cloverdale this year.

It’s Western Canada’s largest classic and vintage motorcycle swap meet.

Collectors and bike enthusiasts (“wrench heads”) will explore a selection of used and new parts, plus clothing and accessories.

Owners of all makes and styles of classic and vintage motorcycles are invited to compete in the show ‘n shine, which has various awards classes, including Best in Show and People’s choice.

The featured bike is a 1939 Velocette Roarer 500 cc.

Owner, designer and builder Dan Smith lives in Vancouver.  He’s spent two-and-a-half years and hundreds of hours on the project (the original protype is in England). Hastings Foundry poured castings from wood patterns made by Smith, who has three other projects of note: a 1936 AJS V-Four, a 1912 Minneapolis and the 1939 Vincent model A Twin.

The event runs April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the newly-renovated Agriplex building on the Cloverdale

Fairgrounds. Admission is $12.
