It was once again a pleasure to team up with the American Motorcyclist Association to bring back the Old Bike Barn crossroads for the 2021 AMA vintage motorcycle days at the famous Mid Ohio sports car course. The crossroads features an assortment of tents and displays showcasing some of the greatest vintage motorcycles the different regions of the world have to offer. Some of our favorite areas like the impressive originals and restorations of the VJMC - vintage Japanese motorcycle club, are always filled with some serious showstoppers from the realm of Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki. They always bring out only the finest and most pristine survivors of the seventies and eighties superbikes. This year the classic British motorcycle club of Cincinnati also showed up in force with a beautiful collection of some of the finest Norton, Triumph, Ariel and BSA motorcycles we have seen to date.
Earlier this year we set out to giveaway not 1, but 2 70s Honda GL1000 survivor motorcycles. We planned to draw the winner live at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Saturday July 11th at the Old Bike Barn Crossroads. With the current pandemic and AMA VMD being postponed, we felt we still needed to honor the giveaway and draw the winner live at the original date selected. Over the weekend we setup up at the Old Bike Barn headquarters and live streamed the drawing on both Facebook and Instagram and a winner was drawn!
In partnership with Mama Tried & Flatout Friday, Old Bike Barn is proud to offer you this full line of amazing merch available for the first time online! The team at Old Bike Barn has been working behind the scenes supporting the Mama Tired Motorcycle Show since the beginning. Both the show and Flat Out Friday have grown to be a highlight of our year and a model of the boots on the ground effort we provide helping the motorcycle community.
Old Bike Barn eats, sleeps, and breathes vintage motorcycles, we strive to keep vintage machines on the road. With that being said, we know buying a used bike and tracing issues previous owners "fixed" can be quite the hassle. We're here to save one lucky person the headache of fixing someone else's problems! The OBB crew has always talked about doing a giveaway with a road ready vintage motorcycle but finding the perfect bike to give away held us up. We wanted it to be something special, something that made a statement in the motorcycle industry... and that special something is the HONDA GL1000!
As 2019 comes to an end, we thought it would be fun to look back at the incredible year we've had embracing vintage motorcycles!
