Fans of the show will know that Fritz has a deep love for vintage motorcycles, some of which he keeps for his own personal collection.
“Having someone as passionate and knowledgeable about motorcycles as Frank join us at AIMExpo will be a real pleasure for everyone,” said Kerry Graeber, marketing director, Marketplace Events Motorcycle Group. “We are committed to providing our attendees with a well-rounded and entertaining event, and the addition of an enthusiast like Frank reaffirms that commitment. Frank has an extensive knowledge of motorcycles, particularly vintage and collectable bikes, and will be able to provide the audience with some fun, helpful and unique insights on picking classics of their own.”
Fritz will be conducting two separate presentations where he will discuss how he goes about picking vintage motorcycles and the vast range of bikes and other unique items he has encountered throughout his many years of exploring people’s barns and basements. Also on display at AIMExpo will be three of Fritz’ favorite motorcycles from his personal collection, all of which hold a story of their own.
Following the presentations, Fritz will be available for a 30-minute meet & greet, Q&A and autograph session where fans and enthusiasts can dive deeper into Fritz’ experiences from the road.
“Motorcycles have been a part of my life since I was young,” said Fritz. “I grew up dreaming of these bikes, so when I come across something vintage it’s very exciting. I’m honored to be part of AIMExpo and look forward to sharing my stories and bikes with people who share my passion.”
Additionally, Fritz will be discussing the launch of his new book, “How to Pick Collectible Motorcycles”. Fritz will share tips on how to find a collectible motorcycle, how to negotiate a good price and how to take care of your investment.
