AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

A fast tribute to those, both young and grey haired, who are maintaining and restoring the classic machines of our motorcycle history. Especially these ’30s and ’40s bikes representing the golden age of motorcycles.

A large number of these expertly restored motorcycles and original classics were on hand at the annual three-day celebration held in July and organized by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The “Em Don’t Hide ‘Em Bike Show” is part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days ad Grand Marshal Malcolm Smith Choice Award went to Jim and Joan Vandergriff of Linwood, KS for their 1939 AJS.

The unique thing about the AJS is that it has two exhaust pipes, but only one piston. It’s called a dual port, and it’s got an incredibly unique sound. You just learned something. Right? AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.

    hello uncle and aunt, your bike is very handsome like its owner (“,) I was dreaming to have a motor, especially the 1986 AJS 500cc and 1956, but cost a fortune and probably all 10 years my salary can only buy it, hehehe …
    only a miracle from God alone who can answer my dreams.
    I trust and believe God definitely answered my prayers and dreams,,,
