Lovers of vintage bikes gather every November in Birmingham, Alabama. The 11th Annual Barber Vintage Festival took place October 9th-11th at the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Museum and the Clymer team was there.
This year’s event was a tribute to the legendary John Britten, a motorcycle designer from New Zealand with 10 Britten bikes on view. It also included a motorcycle swap meet and the “Race of the Century” featuring motorcycles that are all over 100 years old. There was regular racing (road and dirt), a parade of bikes, art, music, “thrill shows,” and plenty of fun for all age groups.
In addition to having a booth throughout the three-day event, Clymer gave away several manuals as prizes for some of the events (see photos of winners above & left). We had a great time hanging out with motorcycle fans from around the world at one of the premiere vintage festivals in the country.
The 2016 festival will be held on October 7-9, so mark your calendars and start making travel plans today or just plan a visit to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum for your next vacation.
