PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Federal Motorcycle Transport is sponsoring the swap meet at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki, July 7-9. The swap meet will pack nearly 1,000 vendors into 35 acres at the three-day vintage motorcycle fest, making it the most eclectic collection of used motorcycles and parts for sale in North America.
The AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Swap Meet, brought to you by Federal Motorcycle Transport, offers vintage motorcycle collectors, restorers, racers and enthusiasts acres of motorcycles, parts and gear during the event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
"Racers, restorers and collectors spend hours at the swap meet digging through the huge selection of parts, accessories and vintage gear," said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. "No matter how many times you've been to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, the swap meet is something you don't want to miss. And we are very happy to have Federal Motorcycle Transport return as the sponsor this year."
A Federal Motorcycle Transport representative will be at the AMA Swap Meet Central tent with information about shipping. The tent will be at the north entrance to the swap meet and will feature a map to help visitors locate certain parts.
"Federal Motorcycle Transport is proud to once again sponsor the swap meet at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days" said Jennifer Gibbs, Federal Motorcycle Transport Manager. "We will have a table set up near the AMA Swap Meet tent on July 7 and July 8, so be sure to stop by for information on shipping your motorcycle within the United States. Discounted pricing is available to AMA members. You will also have a chance to meet rising country music star Beau Braswell, former AMA flat track racer, who will be performing on Friday night, July 7 at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days."
