American Iron Magazine’s Motorcycle Kickstart Classic Ride In May

The Motorcycle Kickstart Classic ride, put together by American Iron Magazine and RoadBike, and sponsored by BAKER Drivetrain is filling up. Registration is limited to the first 100 riders to sign up and then it closes. As of May 21 there are less than 50 spots still available.

This year the Motorcycle Kickstart Classic ride will be lead by American Iron Magazine’s Buzz Kanter, Wheels Through Time’s Dale & Matt Walksler, Bert Baker (of BAKER Drivetrain) and legendary Knucklehead dragracer Pete Hill.

The 2-day Motorcycle Kickstart Classic goes from Wheels Through Time museum in Maggie Valley the morning of May 17 and heads up into the mountins. We will be part of the Open House at Crossroads Harley in Wilkesboro, NC that night. The next day the riders pull into the AMCA event in Denton in time for the swap meet and bike show.

Registration is $100 per person (rider and passanger/support). Please send payment along with name, address, email address and t-shirt size(s) to American Iron Magazine, ATTN Motorcycle Kickstart Classic, 1010 Summer St., Stamford, CT 06905.
