….at 6 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, 9/22/18.  On-site registration will be available but for those entering a motorcycle into the show.  However, the fee will be $15.  If you are not entering the show, you can still ride in on your motorcycle of choice and park it free of charge, while there is space.  If we fill up Orrington Ave., there should be ample street parking nearby and you do not need to feed the meter on Sunday!

Remember, if you are bringing a motorcycle by trailer, cars and trailers can use the Evanston’s Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center parking lot.  Directions to the event from the civic center can be found HERE.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Year:  1966                                 Brand:  Moto Guzzi                                Model:  Stornello 125

Owner Comment:  “Found and restored in CT. Nearly every part has been reconditioned with the exception of the tank which sports original paint.”

Year:  1975                                 Brand:  Laverda                                Model:  750GT

Owner Comment:  “Bike was burnt up in a fire, this bike has been my first attempt at a restoration. I used the “nickel and dime” restoration technique.”

Year:  1950                                Brand:  BMW                                      Model:  R24

Owner Comment:  “BMW rolled their first post-war single cylinder motorcycle, the R24, off the Munich Production line December 17, 1948. Allied restrictions limited the displacement of all German motorcycles to 250cc. The R24 was based on the pre-war R23……The R24 was the most expensive motorcycle available in Germany, but by 1950 when the R25 replaced the model, 12,020 had been sold. It was an undoubted success and paved the way for the return of the Boxer and the restarting of car production in 1951….”

Year:  1967                                 Brand:  Honda                                Model:  CL77

Owner Comment:  “This was a barn find.”

Year:  1912                                 Brand:  Indian                    Model:  61 cubic inch 1000cc twin

Owner Comment:  “This bike cost $250.00 in 1912. Appr. 3000 of these bikes were made. 1912 is the same year that the Titanic sank.”

JiMMYBAR! was born out of total frustration with the bar choices on the market. Many healthy bars taste like sawdust and good tasting bars use junk ingredients, yet market themselves as healthy.  JiMMYBARS are now on the shelves of national stores–convenience stores, health food stores and chains that want to give people clean food.  In 2018, their new look is as clean as their bars and helps you find your favorite flavors, desired protein count, and other key information you need fast. They even enhanced the flavor and lowered the number of ingredients to give people more of what they want. Check them out at JiMMYBAR!
