"The variety of bikes, the quality of the restorations and the enthusiasm of the club members make the Club Corral one of my favorite features of Vintage Motorcycle Days," said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. "The club members who staff these exhibits are among the most die-hard vintage riders you will find."
Displays in the Club Corral include original and restored motorcycles, club information, historical information and memorabilia.
