ALBANY VINTAGE & CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE CLUB

Back to Main Index

History

The Club was formed in 1999 to cater for the needs of local enthusiasts of Vintage and Classic bikes. At present we have 196 members. We are a group of people with a variety of motorcycles from the very old to the very new, and our interest is the restoration and enjoyment of all machines.

We wish to expand the interest in older bikes by encouraging younger members and we have no prejudice about the year, size or make of motorcycle. We are a social club with an emphasis on enjoying ourselves with maximum participation by all members - family and friends are always welcome.

We have short and longer runs suitable for all types of bikes, with back-up trailer available on the slower rides. The Club is able to concessionally license motorcycles over 25 years old. The current annual licence for these bikes is around $70. Note that this licence is only for club runs or a test ride of up to 30 kilometres.

A magazine is published every two months, complete with local articles and the Club calendar. Visitors are always welcome to our rides or meetings. Monthly meetings are held at 7:30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month at Lotteries House, North Road, Albany.

Membership is $25 a year, $25 application fee.

Rides normally leave from the tourist bay at the junction of Chester Pass Road and Mercer Road.
