BIKER RAGS VINTAGE BIKE SHOW AUGUST 30, 2009
On Sunday, August 30th – we held a “Vintage Motorcycle Show” for all bikes 25 years or older. It turned out to be a great day for a bike show as the temperature stayed right around 80°- the sun and clouds alternating throughout the afternoon.
The show was scheduled for 1 to 4pm and bikes started showing up to enter around 11:15am. By the time the show started at 1pm we had 71 people signed in- some with multiple bikes. By the time we did the official count, around 3pm- we had 93 bikes including 10 from our own Biker Rags collection.
We had complimentary snacks and pizza for all the entrants- and a “Most Wanted Motorcycle” contest. Each entrant got a vote for the bike they would “most want” to take home that day. Doc Tyler from Knoxville won with a 1950 Vincent, Conard Shultz took 2nd place with a beautiful Triumph chopper and Mike Swenson got 3rd with his 1956 Harley Panhead that he rides on a regular basis.
Besides these three bikes, there were some other absolutely stunning motorcycles- as well as several “as is” daily rides- and some barn fresh originals. Harleys were well represented, several Nortons, BSA’s, Triumph’s and quite a few Japanese Marque’s.
In November, Biker Rags will be celebrating 15 years in business and we will be having another Vintage Show on Sunday, November 8, 2009. If you have a vintage motorcycle- mark your calendar- we would love to have you.
Thanks to everyone that brought a bike to the show! And a very special thanks to WIMZ for helping us to promote it. We also want to thank Ken Schwall from WBIR TV who came out and did a piece on our Biker Rags vintage bike collection- and did a preview of the vintage show.
