Boyertown, Pennsylvania – The harshest winter in years has regularly left motorcycle dealerships devoid of traffic as enthusiasts and potential customers have tended to more immediate needs like clearing walkways, shoveling driveways and simply just staying warm. All that changed on Saturday, March 1st as Martin Moto, of Boyertown, Pa rolled out its Fourth Annual Modern Classics motorcycle show. 

As in the three previous years The Modern Classics attracted well over 1000 guests to the spacious Martin Moto showroom in order that they might take a close look at some 100 epic motorcycles primarily from the decades of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Bikes representing over 30 manufacturers were on display including museum quality restorations, a sampling of mild customs, and competition machines. There were even a handful unrestored “Pioneer” bikes on hand in order to help tell the history of this year’s featured class, motorcycles with two stroke engines. The oldest bike in the show came from England and was an original Scott Flying Squirrel, a remarkably advanced two cylinder, water cooled two stroke bike from 1936. At the other end of the spectrum, visitors marveled at the mid 1980s road-going replicas of grand prix race bikes like the 1986 Suzuki RG 500 Gamma that was on display. Between those two “bookends” guests found a wide variety of nostalgia provoking motorcycles as well as like-minded enthusiasts with which to share stories and memories.
