Local Vintage Club Invited to the Big Show

The Cycle World International Motorcycle Show that has long been held in Atlanta has relocated to Greenville, S.C. for 2009. The 13th and last IMS of the season will be held February 20, 21 and 22 at the Carolina First Center off Pleasantburg Drive (SC Highway 291) at the junction with Tower Drive.

Knoxville’s Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club has been invited to participate in the Greenville show, and the club plans on taking a display of 17 vintage machines. Highlights of the display will include a 1973 Laverda SF, a 1960 Harley-Davidson Servicar, a 1948 Jawa 350, and a 1957 BSA Gold Star. Even though the purpose of the event is to sell new motorcycles, the show’s organizers, Advanstar Communications of California, discovered through attendee survey results that the vintage motorcycle displays at some of the previous years’ International Motorcycle Shows were some of the most popular features. So for 2009 Advanstar has given vintage motorcycles a more prominent role at the Greenville event.

The club took a smaller group of bikes to the IMS in Atlanta last January, and the response was overwhelmingly positive, says club secretary Jim Wagoner. For more information on the Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club, log onto their website: timewarpvmc.org.
