LEXINGTON, Ohio — Winners were selected for the AMA Hall of Fame Raffle Bike and a 2017 Kawasaki Z125 PRO on Sunday, during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki.
This Kawasaki Z125 PRO was given away during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days on Sunday.
Joe Hoffarth of Waynesburg, Ohio, was chosen as the winner of the Z125 PRO provided by Kawasaki.
The winner of the Hall of Fame Raffle Bike, a fully restored 1966 Harley-Davidson FLH, is Terry Hanser of Tampa, Fla.

Hoffarth's winning entry was selected from nearly 750 people who entered during Vintage Motorcycle Days this year. AMA members received two chances to win. And members of the Kawasaki affinity group for AMA members ROK, Powered by the AMA, received three chances to win if they entered the sweepstakes.
Hanser's name was drawn by Tony Nicosia, who served as co-grand marshal for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this year, along with Steve Johnson, Gary Semics and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Jeff Fredette. Johnson joined Nicosia onstage for the drawing.
AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman pointed out that Hanser's winning ticket was a preprinted one. That means Hanser had entered previous raffles and responded favorably when the AMA contacted him to enter again.
The beautiful 1966 Harley-Davidson FLH is a pristine example of a restored classic American touring motorcycle.
