Vintage Moto Mornings

Vintage & rat rod motorcycles (about 25 years or older) are invited to our inaugural season of Vintage Moto Mornings. These will take place the first Saturday of the month at our shop. We'll have coffee/energy drinks, doughnuts and project talk. Drive over your old bike in any condition and check out what everyone else is riding. The time is 10am-1pm, which also makes it a good place to meet up with friends before a group ride. The dates are:
