The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum has announced it will host “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” during 2008 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days and invites the participation of all Triumph owners in this noteworthy event.

“The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” will be held at the Motorhead Café on July 25 and 26, 2008. It will honor the VMD Marque of the Year, Triumph. Inspired by “Antiques Roadshow,” the hit PBS program, “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” will feature Triumph expert and Baxter Cycle owner, Randy Baxter, appraising classic Triumphs and Triumph memorabilia. 

Baxter will be appraising both correctly restored and original unrestored Triumphs, but he will do more than simply assign a dollar value to the motorcycles. Baxter will also share restoration trends and tips with the audience.

If you own a correctly restored Triumph and have ever wondered if your paint color and pin striping would pass concours judging or if your decals are authentically placed, this is the event for you. Additionally, if you own an original unrestored machine, Baxter and the Museum invite you to participate in “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” and allow fellow enthusiasts to appreciate and learn from your classic bike.  

Triumph owners who would like to participate in “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” are invited to contact Mark Mederski, Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum executive director, at Owners must register in advance to have machines and memorabilia appraised by Baxter during “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow.”

Enthusiasts who plan to attend “The Vintage Triumph Roadshow” as spectators do not need to pre-register. Visit for more information.
