For the sixth consecutive year, a collection of stunning motorcycles from the 1960s through the early ’90s heralded the coming of spring at March 4-5 Modern Classics Motorcycle Show at Martin Moto in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.

The 2016 show featured 107 motorcycles, representing 33 different marques, and provided guests with a time machine journey to the motorcycling universe as it existed some 30-40 years ago.

For many the highlight of the show was the 1994 Britten V1000, one of the only ten examples of New Zealander John Britten’s masterpiece. For others, perhaps it was the pair of 1977 MV Agusta 850SS or the tasty selection of Motocross, Trials, and Enduro machines on display — including examples from long defunct, but well respected, manufacturers like OSSA, Montesa, Maico and CZ. Also featured was a display of Triumph Bonnevilles Through the Years, including all the important variants from 1959 to the present day. A wide variety of other interesting period machines, literally from A to Z — Aermacchi to Zundapp, populated the 10,000 sq. ft. show floor.
