Tenino is hallway between Seattle and Portland. The park is lovely and most of us camp. Booths open Friday at noon. This is more than a swapmeet guys--best weekend of the year.

just checked out the website, looks like alot of nice bikes up there in the Evergreen club. I hope the high school teacher doesnt resign and the high school kids start bringing more of their friends along. Otherwise it looks like youll have to rename AMCA to Antique Motorcyclist Club of America. Good luck with the auction, hope it funds another project for next year.

We've actually had an influx of younger guys recently and membership in our chapter has doubled in the last five or six years. No one in their twenties that I can think of, but some in the thirty-to-fifty range (yes, a guy in his fifties is "younger" to me). It's interesting, too, that by being more open minded and less Harley-centric, we've had members that started with less expensive Japanese bikes and are now dabbling in Ironheads.

I'm going to have to steal your "antique motorcyclist" line.

Thats good to hear. Youngblood to keep the sport alive. Strangely enough as of lately, those inexpensive Japanese bikes are fetching prices higher than the HD's in some cases.

Hey, if one of you guys come across a heel-toe shifter for a right shift nose cone bike for good price, pick it up for me will you?

76 and earlier, I bought it to try to use on my 82 somehow do to a disability I have with my left foot...needless to say it won’t do what I need so your more than welcome to it for the cost of postage, let me know.
