Each year, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, raffles away a vintage motorcycle to help raise funds for its cause of promoting motorcycling’s heritage. For 2015, the bike on offer to one lucky raffle ticket holder is a fully restored 1965 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra Glide. The bike will be awarded at the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, July 12.
“Few motorcycles command a presence on the open road like this classic Electra Glide,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “From its broad, sweeping handlebars to the sharp red paint to the Panhead V-twin, it’s a visual and mechanical work of art. Plus, this raffle is for a noble cause that we all support. I invite everyone to come out to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days to celebrate motorcycling’s history and get their chance to win this amazing motorcycle.”
The 1965 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra Glide is fully restored and ready for the road, with a rebuilt engine and transmission, a new factory-specified electrical harness, rebuilt wheels and a new professional paint job.
Recommended donation for tickets is $5 each or five for $20. The drawing is scheduled for noon onSunday, July 12, at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame tent at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. The winner does not have to be present to win, but must be 18 years or older and a citizen of the United States. Tickets may be purchased at www.motorcyclemuseum.org, by calling (614) 856-2222, at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, Ohio, or at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.
For 2015, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is a fundraiser for the facility, which houses the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame and other thematic exhibits that celebrate motorcycling’s heritage.
The museum was founded in 1990 to provide a permanent home to the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which celebrates and preserves the rich tradition of motorcycling in America through the recognition of the sport’s greatest heroes. Proceeds from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days are donated to the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization tasked with funding the operation of the museum and Hall of Fame activities.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is the home of the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which includes road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track racing. Another top attraction is North America’s largest motorcycle swap meet with parts, bikes and memorabilia from all eras. Bike shows bring out examples of some of history’s most beloved motorcycles, while stunt shows, such as the American Motor Drome Wall of Death, and demo rides of current production bikes keep attendees entertained. Seminars feature some of the country’s leading experts on numerous motorcycling topics.
