Court House Custom will host the 2015 Fall Swap Meet on Sunday, Oct. 4 from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. with no set-up or entry fee.
The swap meet will be held at 839 Columbus Ave. in Washington Court House and will include many parts from such brands as Harley, Triumph, Vintage Chopper and even Honda and Yamaha. Court House Custom is encouraging motorcycle enthusiasts to join in on the event by bringing old parts to sell, or to buy, some of those much needed or long sought after parts from local vendors.
“We have done it for a couple years now off and on after going to a big swap meet in Greenfield,” Court House Custom co-owner, D.J. Jenkins, said. “We wanted to hold a smaller, more personal swap meet here in the county to support our own local vendors. As long as those vendors who let us know they are coming show up, they will be set up for free to sell their parts or other motorcycle items.”
Space is limited for the event and those planning on attending and want to be guaranteed a spot must RSVP to the event by dropping off or mailing in a check for $20. The check will need to be made out to Court House Customs and will be given back to the vendor on the morning of the event as long as they show up. If the vendor does not show up, the check will be cashed and donated to charity. Court House Custom also said to indicate how much space is needed (i.e. 10 by 10) in the memo section of the check.
“We have decided to donate all of the money from no-show vendors to the Southern Ohio Buckeye Bikers,” Jenkins said. “This group helps veterans around the county and it goes toward the bike rally for next year as well. We would love to have people come out and help to support local vendors. We really enjoy holding and promoting local motorcycle events and are trying to further the cause of motorcycle-related groups here in Court House.”
If it is not possible to RSVP, Court House Customs continues to encourage vendors to come the day of the event as they are going to attempt to accommodate any vendors who want to sell. For more information about the event, call Court House Custom at (740) 335-2466 or by email: [email protected]
