Vintage Motorcycle Show at The LeMay Museum

August 23, 2015/Jonathan Rundle/2 Comments

“The Meet at America’s Car Museum” is back for a fourth year and (of course) I went down to check it out.

Indian was the corporate sponsor for this year’s show. Polaris bought the marque in a few years ago and have by all accounts revived Indian in all the right ways. The big retro cruisers are there with all the fringe you could ask for, but they also brought back the Scout – which looks fantastic. The people at Indian were hosting demo rides all day long.

There was a surprising number of vintage enduro bikes in the field, which is a nice change to the normal old Hondas and Harleys you see at an event like this.

Plenty of old Triumphs were in the field. None prettier than this example.

Gotta love that heat shield – I wouldn’t want to polish all those little spokes, though. Oh who am I kidding – yes I would.

Suzuki’s first liter bike, the GS1000S landed in showrooms in 1977 – this 1979 Wes Cooley replica version was pulling in lots of interest at the show.

Last year’s Best of Show winner – and you can see why. A gorgeous BMW sidecar rig.

The premier Vintage Motorcycle Meet in the Pacific Northwest delivered again in it’s 4th year. Here’s hoping the 5th is even bigger and better. Rest assured, I’ll be there (and who knows maybe my CB 750 will be on the field for that one).

    Nice bikes! Your CB 750 and GB 500 should both be in the field!
