Craig Vetter Will Host Daytona Hall Of Fame Event

vetter2The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that  motorcycle inventor, designer, racer and Hall of Famer Craig Vetter, will be the featured guest at its annual AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast at Daytona, on Friday, March 14, at 7:00 a.m., at the Daytona 500 Club on the infield at Daytona International Speedway.

“Craig Vetter’s impact is far-reaching, starting with the design of the iconic Windjammer fairings of the 1970s, continuing with motorcycle designs like the Triumph X-75 Hurricane and the limited-edition ‘Mystery Ship,’ and enduring more recently with a resurrected series of motorcycle fuel economy runs that push the boundaries of everyday streamlining,” said Jeff Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the Hall of Fame. “We’re proud to host motorcycling’s design professor emeritus for this year’s Breakfast at Daytona.”

vetter3Taking place during 2014 Daytona Bike Week, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast at Daytona fundraiser will feature a live interview with Vetter on stage, an audience Q&A period and an autograph session with Vetter and other Hall of Famers in attendance. Proceeds benefit the AMHF and the Hall of Fame.
Craig Vetter founded the Vetter Corporation, a company that became famous for its touring and sport fairings for motorcycles from the late 1960s into the 1980s. Vetter’s designs always inspired new directions in motorcycle design. You can register for this event at Motorcycle Museum Events.

    I might have to drive over for this event! Craig and Mike Corbin both heroes of mine. Look at what they did 30 years ago and see what is new today, those two guys were and are way ahead of the game.

    CV is the ideal guy to be there.If anybody has done more for U.S.motorcycle design or the aftermarket industry.I’d like to know who.

    Terence tory….how bout erik buell, willie g, math hotch, the ness family , all great people but vetters fairings were for universal Japanese motorcycles his triumph design was really nice but not American,so to say he did more than anyone again shows your lack of knowledge about motorcycle history, business and design…have a great day keyboard commando

    CV in his X-75 design inspired most Japanese cruiser designs of the big four,which in total production would be in the hundreds of thousands,if not millions.If the X-75 is not American market bike,well I guess A.C. Cobras and GT40’s are British then.

    Vetter’s fairing production figures would be in the hundreds of thousands.Oh,and Willie G went to admire and appraise Craig Vetters’ work remember. Not the other way around.Sure looks like a Vetter Fairing on a UHDM to me. Ask Elvis.

    I don’t rate Hotch’s work much more than a mere blip on the road to nowhere.Ness built great bikes.

    Buell has built and raced great well engineered bikes,no argument there.But he did not create novel motorcycle designs for entirely different market sectors like CV has done.The soft UJM cruiser and the modern full dress interstate tourer sectors show CV’s influence over all other contenders.

    You listed plenty of guys,but I asked if any other single man could compare with his influence.You filled a van.
