The Downtown Development Authority, City of West Palm Beach, and Vintage Iron Club have joined forces again to bring one of the largest growing cultural movements back to Palm Beach County. The vintage motorcycle revival has taken the nation by storm over the last few years and Clematis St. will be hosting what has become one of the largest vintage motorcycle festivals in Florida.
We will be raffling off a 1974 BMW cafe racer donated by rocketmanradio.com and Cafe Racer TV’s Santiago Choppers!
This will be a charity sponsorship event to raise money for a great cause. Canine Companions for Independence (cci.org)
Last year we raised over $3,500!! Raffle tickets and Bike Registration can be found at vintageironclub.org
At the first annual I&C we had over 250 vinatge bikes, 39 vendors, and 4000 spectators!!! The city predicts double the attendance for this years event! Our show is an event that is fun for the entire family, both young and old. The festival will be hosted again on the 500 block of Clematis St. closing down the block for the event.
All bikes 25 years or older are welcome to register and display at: vintageironclub.org If you’re interested in vendor space or sponsorship drop us a line ASAP! The spaces are going fast! firstname.lastname@example.org
The American Motorcyclist Association has announced that next year’s celebration of vintage motorcycling, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, will be July 10-12, 2015, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
“AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days has a long and rich history as one of motorcycling’s most fun, feel-good events,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “From the vintage racing to the bike shows to the enormous swap meet, there is something for everyone at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. If you love motorcycles, there is no better place to be.”
A fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous.
Activities include the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which features road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track racing. North America’s largest motorcycle swap meet is also held during the event, with parts, bikes and memorabilia from all eras. Bike shows, stunt shows (including the American Motor Drome Wall of Death) and demo rides of current production bikes keep attendees entertained, while numerous seminars by noted motorcycling experts keep them informed.
