Seventh Annual Motocycle Swap Meet and Bike Show Submitted: 03/09/2013
RHINELANDER - With spring slowly moving in on us, you might be thinking about cleaning off your warm weather toys to hit the road. One local group is getting ready by selling bike parts and it's for a good cause. This was the seventh annual motorcycle swap meet and bike show. Bikers came out to find parts for their motorcycles and enjoy live music from local band dirty side down. The money raised will be donated to local charities.

"We try to hold it this time of the year just for the people that are trying to get their bikes built, get them together and ready for spring to ride," Swap Meet Organizer, Cody Shmidt said. "The money we raised today will go the local food pantries and also the American legion post in lake tomahawk." One of the coordinators says it's a lot of hard work to get the word out about the event, but the effort is worth it. "There's nothing like this around up here in the Northwoods," said Swap Meet Coordinator, Mike Martin. "You just get a bunch or bike buddies together and have bunch of fun and try to sell some parts." Donations were also provided by local businesses and restaurants.
