Davenport Is The Spot For Vintage Motorcycle Racing At It’s Best
August 26, 2010 | By: Kody Wisner
The Chief Blackhawk chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America is hosting one of Iowa’s biggest antique motorcycle swap meets and vintage flat track races Sept.2-5 at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport, Iowa.
This is one of the largest events of the year for the AMCA, and it takes place smack dab in the middle of the country, making it easier for enthusiasts to attend from both coasts and everywhere in between. Highlighting the event is a motorcycle parts swap meet, a concourse full of beautifully restored motorcycles, technical classes on many different subjects, and a dirt track for bar-to-bar vintage racing.
There’s going to be vendors, a banquet, a craft fair and shuttles to area malls, gambling boats and other activities. And as long as you’re in the area, you might as well make the short trip to Anamosa, Iowa, to visit the National Motorcycle Museum at its new location.
