Museum’s fourth annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival to commemorate classic two-wheelers on August 22

Tacoma, Wash., Mar. 11—Vintage motorcycles will roar back onto the Haub Family Field for the fourth annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival: The MEET at America’s Car Museum on August 22.

The Vintage Motorcycle Festival is one of five annual ACM signature events and features iconic motorcycles from Indian, Harley-Davidson, BMW, Ducati, Triumph, Honda, Norton, Kawasaki, BSA and many marques from bygone eras.

“The MEET is the go-to vintage bike event in the Northwest,” said ACM’s President and CEO David Madeira. “Last year, we had more than 2,000 attendees and 300 bikes, this year there’s more for everyone because we are inviting bikes built before 1990 to be displayed.”
