Born Free 10 Sails Into Oak Canyon Ranch – Silverado, CA 6/23-24/2018

Posted by

Surprisingly, one of the biggest and best annual motorcycle shows, Born Free, is only hitting its tenth anniversary this year. Taking place in the mountains of Orange County, CA, at a cross between a kids summer camp and a KOA, there is plenty of room for people and motorcycles, and few neighbors to upset with your loud pipes.

That is just one part of one of the bike parking lots and at the end of the day when many people had already left! Without a drone, it is impossible to get a real picture of just how many bikes were there.… Read the rest

The Congregation Vintage and Custom Motorcycle Show – Charlotte, North Carolina

Posted by

The Congregation Show, only in its second year, is quickly rivaling the likes of Austin’s Handbuilt Show, The One Show in Portland, OR, and LA’s Outlier’s Guild Moto Show. Hosted by DICE Magazine, Harley-Davidson and operated by the boys of Prism Supply, this vintage motorcycle show features a variety of talented custom builders from around the country.

The 2nd Annual Outlier’s Guild Custom Motorcycle Show – L.A., CA

Posted by

 

Southern California is one of the largest motorcycle markets in the country, even without the northern half of the state, so it has its fair share of motorcycle events over the course of the year. Not only are there plenty of enthusiasts to attend, the vast majority of motorcycle aftermarket companies are all within 150 miles of Los Angeles, and most of the big Japanese motorcycle manufacturers are headquartered there. One of the newest and hippest shows, returning for just the second year in 2018, is the Outlier’s Guild Motorcycle Show, aka the OG Motoshow.

 

The show is set up in a large space in the downtown L.A.… Read the rest

Chris “Teach” McNeil performed his motorcycle stunt show at one of the largest vintage motorcycle show in the Midwest, the HoAME Vintage Motorcycle Show in Kansas City, MO, thanks to sponsorship from Engle Motors. Most stunters ride readily available Japanese sport bikes from the big four, but Teach does it a little differently, choosing a BMW adventure touring bike, and their latest Teutonic superbike. Let’s take a look closer look at the modifications this stellar stunt rider’s motorcycles, provided by XDL Rider and BMW.

The 3rd Annual Women’s Motorcycle Show – L.A., CA

Posted by

The third annual Women’s Motorcycle Show put on by Moto Lady and the Lucky Wheels DIY Garage in L.A., happened this past weekend and it was so much larger than expected it got raided and shut down by the police. It seems they thought there was some street racing going on, or possibly that it was a big outlaw biker club rally. Nevertheless, everyone had a good time and some talented ladies got to show off the bikes they had built or at least commissioned.

 

 

 

No matter whether you like new bikes or old, sportbikes or cruisers, there was something for everyone at the show, plus music, welding and blacksmithing demonstrations, snacks, and a raffle with many valuable prizes.… Read the rest

1971 Honda CB500 Four – 2013 HoAME Motorcycle Show

Posted by

Clymer Manuals liked this 1971 Honda CB500 four so much when we saw it at the 2013 Heart of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts show and rally that we made it the cover bike on our manual. The big Honda CB750 four may get all the glory, but its little brother the CB500 is said to be a much better bike to ride when the roads get twisty.

Clymer Girl and the crew didn’t have to go far to attend the HoAME show and rally, as it was just up the road at the Kansas City Airline History Museum in the Downtown Airport. The show was packed with classic vintage and antique motorcycles representing the best of British, German, Japanese, Italian, and American manufacturers. Some of the brands on display were Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, BMW, Harley-Davidson, Triumph, BSA, Norton, Indian, Cushman, Vespa, Laverda, Lambretta, Ducati, Matchless, Zundapp, Moto Guzzi, and more.… Read the rest

The BSA Firebird 650 is already a cool machine, but the folks at Barnyard Scraps Restoration took it to another level with subtle improvements to their custom cafe racer. Clymer caught this metal flake beauty on video at the 2013 Heart of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts show.

1954 Matchless G9B Classic British Twin – 2013 HoAME Show

Posted by

The Matchless G9B 500cc parallel twin was one of the best bikes to come out of the UK in the 1950s, and great looking too, like this one at Heart of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts (HoAME) Vintage Motorcycle Rally/Show. A versions of the same model became the G45 factory racer, which won its class at the Manx Grand Prix in 1952, and it later evolved into the G12, like this one.
