2014 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. Indian Motorcycle Celebrated As Marque Of The Year.

old-indianThe American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Vintage Motorcycle Days will be held  July 11-13, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Events will include special recognition, displays and race classes for historic Indian-brand motorcycles (including Indian “Motocycles” from the early days), as well as participation from the new Indian Motorcycle.

Attendees to the three-day festival of vintage motorcycling will experience a special Indian Motocycle themed tent on the Mid-Ohio infield featuring beautiful examples of classic Indian machines, as well as the latest machines from the new Indian Motorcycle. In addition, a full demo fleet of Indian Motorcycles will be at the event, allowing attendees to get a feel for the Indian Motorcycle line-up.

“Few of motorcycling’s great brands have as much history as Indian Motorcycle, which began in 1901 and helped define the pre-WWII motorcycling era with iconic models like the Indian Scout and Chief,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “With the modern revival of the Indian Motorcycle name being backed by Polaris Industries, we’re excited to celebrate the brand’s iconic motorcycling history, as well as its future.”

Indian Motorcycle Vice President Steve Menneto says the company is looking forward to showcase its new models to some of motorcycling’s most die-hard enthusiasts. “It is a real honor to our entire team for Indian Motorcycle to be selected Marque of the year for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days,” said Menneto. “We know that enthusiasts of all brands come to this event, and the chance to not only celebrate where the Indian Motorcycle came from but to display and ride where we are heading is going to make a for a fantastic weekend.”

Advance tickets are available to the general public at Mid Ohio. More info at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

    So cool to be able to view the “historic record” of an iconic American MC brand.
    Ignorance of history in any context inevitably becomes its own reword.

    Burt Munro’s ” Worlds Fastest Indian ” 1920 Scout could be the show stopper if it could be on display,otherwise I am still happy they are alive and seem to be doing well. Hopefully they can come up with a smaller “midsize” market bike ala HD.How about a 750 Scout?
