AMA VINTAGE MOTORCYCLE DAYS 2007 TO CELEBRATE HARLEY-DAVIDSON'S SPORTSTER

PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced that the Harley-Davidson Sportster will be the "Featured Marque" at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2007, to be held July 27-29 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Introduced as the XL in 1957, the Sportster will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2007. This landmark line of motorcycles has become an indisputable icon in American motorcycling and has had a significant impact on American culture.

In addition to the XL, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2007 will honor the Sportster's earlier siblings, including the K, KK, KH, KR and XR models.

Owners of Sportster XL motorcycles, as well as owners of Harley-Davidson K, KK, KH, KR and XR motorcycles, are invited to bring their machines to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2007 for display in the Sportster Corral. A select group of early and significant examples will be chosen for a special Marque of the Year display. For more information, contact Will Stoner at wstoner@ama-cycle.org or 614-856-1900 ext. 1227.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2007, which will benefit the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, will include exhibits of classic motorcycles and memorabilia, the all-brands AMA Swapmeet, bike shows, a full slate of vintage racing, and other features to be announced in the coming months.

As in previous years, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will kick off a ten-day celebration of motorcycling at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, concluding with the AMA Honda Super Cycle Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire the following weekend, August 3-5.
