When: Friday 3/2, 7-10PM & Saturday 3/3 9-5PM
Where: Martin Moto 567 Rte. 100 Boyertown, PA 19512
What: Cool old bikes, including some from the aughts, teens, twenties, and newer!



The Modern Classics is Martin Moto's widely acclaimed annual tribute to the great motorcycles of the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Now in its eighth year, The Modern Classics is a 100-bike, all-brands, invite-only show staged indoors in the spacious Martin Moto showroom in Boyertown, Pa. Each show features a fresh assortment of machines from those eras.



For 2018, in addition to the many standard classics in the mix, The Modern Classics will step outside the late 20th century time frame to present a sampling of significant motorcycles from each decade of the two wheeled sport's history beginning in the early 1900s. We'll present a fantastic mix of our usual '60s through '90s Modern Classics as well as a sampling of earlier machines that helped define the style, technology and art of motorcycling.

Literally a "museum for a day," The Modern Classics begins with Friday, March 2nd's "Kickstart" Party featuring music, from 7PM - 10PM, featuring performing artists, refreshments, and the chance to stroll the show floor amid a party atmosphere. Tickets are $15, and available online only. Tickets are limited, so get yours today at modernclassicsbikeshow.com!



Saturday follows with a day-long opportunity to revisit a unique collection of bikes that perhaps framed your entrance into motorcycling, from 9AM - 5PM. Tickets are $10 at the door. Think of that - just ten cents per motorcycle to see an assembly of motorcycles that will rival most museums you could travel to.

See you there!

Happening again in 2019 on March 1 & 2.

Info here: https://www.martinmoto.com/check-out-our--modern-classics

This isn't just spam; I help out with this show and it's killer every year. We literally spend all year sourcing bikes for it. If you like classic bikes, it's totally worth the drive in.

It's cold and shitty out. What other motorcycle thing are you gonna do that weekend?!

$10 doesn't seem pricey to me, and I live in the past a lot.

Def. worth the trip. We usually try to have at least one "showstopper." Last year was a Reading Standard. The year before was a Munch Mammoth. One year we had a Britten!

Britten!? Awesome indeed. Were I to win the lottery I'd hunt one down. Not so easy seeing as there's only 10. Cool thing is there are spares available. You will pay and wait but they'll be made.

I saw Andrew Stroud pound the factory Ducatis at Daytona on Britten #5.............from the back of the grid. If I had the cash I'd spend a couple million to get one. And ride it.
