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.
