If you haven’t already, make plans for the 3rd annual The Meet Vintage Motorcycle Festival August 22-24 at America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. A concours event, The Meet features 450-plus vintage motorcycles spread out across the museum’s 3.5-acre Haub Family Showfield.
Last year’s event drew an estimated 4,500 vintage bike fans, and this year’s show should easily best that thanks to the announcement that fees for motorcycles entering the concours have been eliminated. We’ll be set up with other vendors ringing the field, plus there will be food, music, a swap meet, a used bike corral, seminars and a Sunday group ride. A panel of 14 judges including Motorcycle Classics’ Richard Backus will award trophies in 22 categories. This show beats expectations every year, with an ever-changing and growing selection of spectacular vintage motorcycles from around the world on display. Best of Show last year went to a 1955 Ceccato 75cc single, one of only a few made, even fewer of which survive. MC
