LeMay Meet at the Ace 2012 

The LeMay - America's Car Museum, has teamed up with Ace Cafe London for what's sure to be a knockout vintage motorcycle event, Meet at the Ace - Summer Shakedown 2012, scheduled for August 24-26 at the new LeMay museum just nearing completion at Haub Family Field in Tacoma, Wash., and set for a June 2 opening.

The show, co-promoted by the museum and Ace Cafe London, will be one of the signature events to debut at the four-level, 165,000-square-foot Tacoma museum following its June 2 grand opening and will feature an array of vintage motorcycles and scooters including Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Indian, Lambretta, Moto Guzzi, Norton, Royal Enfield, Triumph, Vespa, and others. 

“This show will exemplify America’s love affair with the motorcycle just as ACM puts a spotlight on America’s love affair with the automobile,” said David Madeira, ACM president and CEO. “I’ve been a vintage motorcycle aficionado since the 1970s, so my focus is to create an unrivaled vintage bike show in the Pacific Northwest.” 

In addition to judged classes, the event will include motorcycle-related movies, a swap meet, motorcycle demonstrations, live music and a Sunday “Ride to Rainier” overseen by the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts Club (VME). Attendees can also enjoy panel discussions centered on the film “On Any Sunday” and a slideshow retrospective with Ace Cafe London Managing Director Mark Wilsmore.  

“Our vision centers on creating a multifaceted event that draws motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the region to memorialize and celebrate motorcycle culture,” said Burt Richmond, vintage motorcycle & scooter collector and member of the ACM board of directors. “The Pacific Northwest has a vibrant motorcycle community, which puts Ace in position to become a staple of ACM for years to come. The Motorcycle Concours is open to all makes manufactured prior to 1980. This is a judged vintage motorcycle & scooter exhibition that will present awards for various classes.”
