The American Motorcycle Association (AMA) has announced the dates for the 2013 version of its annual celebration of classic bikes. AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will be held from July 19 to 21 in Lexington, Ohio.
The vintage show features much more than just classic bikes and street bike gear. It also honors those who worked on and rode the machines, along with the motorsports riders who helped to bring the motorcycle industry into public view. Enthusiasts will have the opportunity to take a look at the evolution of motorcycles and the culture surrounding the bikes at this unique show.
"We wanted to get the 2013 date out with plenty of time for riders to make plans," said Rob Dingman, AMA president. "AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is unique in the world of motorcycling in that all makes and models of vintage bikes - and all riders - are celebrated in a three-day event that brings out the best of motorcycling."
Other activities occurring during the festival include the AMA Racing Vintage Grand Championships, which will have many different kinds of motocross and road racing events, along with a swap meet, stunt shows and demonstrations of bike prototypes. Several vendors will also be on hand to showcase their gear and creations to the masses.
