The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is once again bringing Vintage Motorcycle Days to the Mid-Ohio Sports car course. This year, the event will be held from July 5th – 7th.
Although the vintage bikes are “stars” of the event, there will be more to see. AMA has planned several other happenings.
Vintage Motorcycle Competition
Attendees can expect plenty of competitive action during the show. AMA has scheduled plenty of vintage road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, flat track, and trials competitions.
In addition to the trials competition, the event will also host an Xtreme Trials exhibition. Both both motorcycles and bicycles will be featured. Riders will face obstacles that will test riders’ balance and skill. Many of the scheduled riders are among the top performers in the NATC/AMA Moto Trials National Championship series.
Fans will also be able to watch riders perform inside a motordrome. The motordrome consists of a vertical walled wooden cylinder 30 feet across and 14 feet high. Inside, riders perform tricks and acrobatic maneuvers on vintage bikes while spectators watch from a platform near the top of the wall.
A large vendor area will be selling motorcycle related gear and services. Past vendors have included vintage and modern gear sellers, painters, pinstripers, tools and, community garages. There will also be a large parts swap meet area.
There will also be forum discussions covering numerous topics including motorcycle restoration and travel. Three AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame members will also host discussions.
