The American Motorcycle Association (AMA) has announced further details about the upcoming Vintage Motorcycle Days, which will be held from July 22-24 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
The main component of Vintage Motorcycle Days will be the two bike shows held on Saturday, July 23rd. The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Static Show will feature a broad range of models from the 1900s to 1989. These vintage rides come from all around the world, and include some of the rarest vehicles in the world.
An interesting alternative is the “Ride ‘Em Don’t Hide ‘Em” show. The restrictions are the same – all models must be from before 1989. However, they also must be mechanically fit enough to complete a 50-mile ride. The idea of the race is to show off motorcycles that are not only beautiful, but can still complete a longer ride.
“Two wheels, a frame, an engine – the fundamental parts of a motorcycle are refreshingly simple and elegant, yet the ends to which designers and engineers have taken those core pieces test the bounds of human creativity,” said AMA Director of Operations Jack Penton. “Many motorcycles representing these unique designs will be featured at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days on July 22-24.”
