American International Motorcycle Expo and the
Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club
Unite to Create Retro Affair, Vintage Motorcycle Show
Historic Motorcycles Will Compete at 2016 Expo
This judged motorcycle competition, to be held at AIMExpo in Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, October 13-16, 2016, will showcase historic, restored and customized motorcycles built before 1990 and is being presented in partnership with the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC).
Motorcycles entered into Retro Affair will be seeded into classes based on model and year and judged on condition, originality and functionality. Top placing motorcycles in each category will be awarded trophies, merchandise and cash prizes with a special prize going to the Best of Show.
“With AIMExpo continuing to establish itself as the premier powersports event in North America, presenting a prestigious bike show and competition at our event is a perfect addition to the brand,” said Cinnamon Kernes, AIMExpo Show Director. “In partnering with the VJMC, we’re looking forward to Retro Affair showcasing an exquisite collection of vintage motorcycles exclusive to AIMExpo.”
“The form and function of motorcycle craftsmanship is one of the most intriguing things to come out of 20th century industrial manufacturing,” said Peter Slatcoff, Vice President and Event Coordinator for the VJMC, the premier worldwide club dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of vintage motorcycles. “Nothing makes a motorcyclist stop in his or her tracks faster than a beautifully restored vintage motorcycle, either because it’s a bike that takes them back to their youth or it’s a bike ridden by their heroes of yesteryear.”
