If rows of stunning vintage bikes from around the world, gleaming in the sun, and piles of parts and fragments of motorcycle history in a swap meet bring a smile to your face, plan to attend the Vintage Rally June 3-5 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.
While the museum in its new location holds over 300 fabulous motorcycles, the new Vintage Rally weekend will play host to even more fine machines lined up out front for review. Judging will result in over 75 awards for owners of the best machines, including those best preserved for the "original unrestored" award.
Enter your 1985 or earlier vintage bike, street, competition, custom or even mini in the bike show. Awards are sponsored by Motorcycle Classics magazine. Ace Café will sponsor a special award during the event. The event also features a swap meet and a panel discussion on smart approaches to collecting.
There will be a Sunday morning ride and lunch followed by the 62nd Annual Motorcycle Hill Climb and Swap Meet by the Midwest Hillclimber’s, just down the road and across the Wapsipinicon River from the Museum. This event will include a special Vintage Hill Climb class, sponsored by the National Motorcycle Museum and J&P Cycles with a $500 cash purse.
Admission to the Vintage Rally is $10 a day, $20 for the weekend or $30 for the weekend with lunch on Sunday. The event price includes admission to the Museum.
