I am happy to announce a contest that I will be running in association with the A.M.C.A. and the A.M.C.A. foundation. Together we will be running an essay contest from October 1st 2008 until August 15th 2009 in hopes of getting 18 to 24 year old Americans excited about old motorcycles. The grand prize is a 1942 Harley Davidson 45 basket case, and an all expense paid vacation to sunny South Dakota to restore and assemble the bike under close supervision and guidance of trained professionals. You can read the full press release by clicking on this link--http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/ ... ntest.html
It is my opinion that a Harley WLA is the perfect platform for a project like this, because of their value, and the vast amount of surplus parts that are readily available. Currently I have approximately 65 percent of the parts needed to complete this project. A lot of my friends in the A.M.C.A. and old motorcycle community have chipped in and donated a part here and a part there. I will be posting a detailed list of what parts have been donated, who has donated them, and what is still needed on http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org, and http://www.caimag.com. If you feel that this is a good cause and want to donate a part that is missing, then please email me at email@example.com. Supporters of the program will be able to be an active part of selecting the winner in Davenport 2009, and will have their name printed in a supporters list in American Iron Magazine, Iron Horse Magazine, and The Antique Motorcycle. Thanks for your support and enthusiasm!!
