Showing your bicycle

You can show your bikes for a chance to win a legendary trophy! A bike registration is $5.00 per bike. It is highly recommended that you pre-register your bikes. You will avoid the long lines the day of the show.

Ed's Bicycle Shop has donated gyro cables, so the first 50 people to pre-register for any item on the website will get a free cable. Cables retail for $9.99 and there is one per person. 

Selling or Swapping

Do you have old parts you're looking to sell? Selling at the Midwest Old School Show exposes your products to hundreds of bike enthusiasts under one roof!! If you plan on selling or vending, you must reserve a spot. Tables are only available when pre-registered, and will NOT be sold the day of the show. YES, we sell out of spots! No outside tables allowed in the building. If you require multiple tables...then pay for them. 

If you reserved a table / vendor spot and have a special request on where you would like to be set up, PM me or email arn02@msn.com and we will do our best to accommodate you. 


Registration closes February 12th. 

ALSO this goes for everyone: there will be NO more blocking the walk area between the tables and show bikes. If you can't fit something in your area or on your table, you will be asked to take it back outside. SIMPLE Buy another spot! We will have no more of 5 guys in one spot! Step up and buy your own spot. If you have a problem call me at 219-374-5722.  

If you don't pre-order a T-shirt, then they are first-come first-serve $20.00 day of the show. 

Indiana hasn't passed any marijuana laws and it is illegal in this state ...if you have a card or no card it's not allowed. Most importantly have respect for others as they will for you, and everyone will have a good time.  

Pre-Party and Memorial

Friday February 22nd is a Bmx show pre-party with a memorial for Bird. Drinks, food, and guys having fun is what Jason would love. Jason was my go-to guy, and he helped make this show happen! Please bring your photos, memories, and good times spent with Jason to talk about. 

We will have a reserved party room at Sheffield's Bar and Grill located at 1515 E 82nd Ave, Merrillville.

Food is a Bar and Grill style menu. This is on the same street as the host hotel La Quinta Inn & Suites, and down the street from the Best Western Inn & Suites Merrillville.
