Got an old bike with tired front forks? Want to learn some of the secrets of suspension tuning? Join Motorcycle Classics and Race Tech Suspension’s Matt Wiley at 11a.m. on Saturday, October 10, at the 5th Annual Barber Vintage Festival for a guided tour on effective suspension upgrades.

Old bikes have old suspensions. Duh. So what do you do when you want to upgrade? New shocks? New forks? New fork springs? There’s more to suspension tuning than just slapping on a new set of springs, something Race Tech Suspension’s Matt Wiley appreciates only too well. 

Since joining Race Tech three years ago, Matt has spearheaded Race Tech’s involvement in the classic bike scene. In that short time he’s created over 200 vintage bike applications for Race Tech, and become a familiar face to AHRMA racers thanks to his regular presence at AHRMA races, where he sets up shop in the pits, giving racers on-the-spot suspension tuning including fork overhauls, shock replacements and installing Race Tech’s Gold Valve Emulators.
