When the National Motorcycle Show opens its doors this spring, an annual Canadian event that traces its roots to a humble motorcycle swap meet will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. To honour the occasion the first 1,000 visitors on each day of the show will receive a commemorative 30th Anniversary pin – one show visitor will even be the winner of a Johnny Pag motorcycle.
The show is best known in the motorcycle community for its used bike auction, the largest of its kind in the Canadian show circuit according to National Motorcycle Show organisers. The motorcycles, which are on display all weekend long, are auctioned off starting Sunday at noon against a backdrop of retailers selling both new and used motorcycles, parts, accessories, clothing.
Custom and vintage motorcycles competing for over $15,000 in cash and prizes as part of the Canadian National Bike Builders Showcase will also part of the show. To coincide with the Anniversary celebration, invitations have been extended to past Best Bike in Show winners to be a part of the Row of Champions, a visual representation of the show’s history.
This year’s National Motorcycle Show will be held March 26 and 27, 2011 at Exhibition Place in Toronto. For full details you can visit the show’s website: www.nationalmotorcycleshow.com .
