MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAME MUSEUM ANNOUNCES CONCOURS
Thursday, August 22, 2002
PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum has announced the First
Annual Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum Concours d'Elegance, to be held on October
19, 2002, on the grounds of the Museum in Pickerington, Ohio.
The invitation-only event will be held in conjunction with the 2002 Motorcycle
Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
"We expect to attract some of the best examples of original and correctly
restored machines in North America," said Executive Director Mark Mederski.
"Competition motorcycles, for example, will reflect the era from which they
came, and not be modified for vintage racing."
The Concours d'Elegance is open to motorcycles manufactured in 1975 and earlier.
Bikes will be judged by a panel of experts from the vintage and antique
motorcycle community in six different classes: American, British, European,
Japanese, Competition, and Specials (café racers, customs and choppers). Scoring
will be based on points awarded in a number of categories, including wheels and
tires, paint, engine, plating, seat and overall cleanliness.
A traveling trophy will be awarded to the best bike in the Concours d'Elegance,
and plaques will be awarded for the top three bikes in each class, as well as
the show's best original unrestored machine.
The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum Concours d'Elegance and the Motorcycle Hall
of Fame induction ceremonies are open to the public. Admission is free.
