The 2013 Vintage Motorcycle Festival: The Meet at America's Car Museum.
Vintage Motorcycle Festival event Chairman Burt Richmond announced today that the third annual old motorcycle show known as The Meet will be held Aug. 22-24, 2014, at America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, Wash. Due to the national success of the 2013 Meet, which attracted over 325 unique and unusual vintage motorcycles from the early 1900s through the Eighties, plans have been made to increase the Haub Family Showfield to accommodate 475 motorcycles. The August 2013 show brought more than 4,000 attendees from 22 states and two Canadian provinces to Tacoma.
There will be a general admission fee of $20 per person, which will provide full access to LeMay-America’s Car Museum and to the Vintage Motorcycle Festival. New for 2014, Richmond confirmed that all fees have been eliminated for entering motorcycles in the Concours.
Thirteen motorcycle dealers will display a good cross section of new motorcycles. They will be joined by 17 aftermarket vendors to provide first-hand product and service information for motorcycle enthusiasts. Both the Used Bike Corral and the Swap Meet spaces have been expanded to handle the increased demand for parts and used motorcycles.
Entertainment will include multiple Seattle Cossacks motorcycle precision acrobatic demonstrations, alternated with the South Sound Trails Rider demonstrations. There will be several seminars covering motorcycle touring, restoration, tech sessions and tuning tips sponsored by Motorcycle Classics magazine.
