Federal/Allied Bike Corral at Vintage MC Days

July 17, 2009
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

If you’re looking to buy or sell a used motorcycle, there’s no better place to be than American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Vintage Motorcycle Days this July 24-26 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, where the first Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral will offer a unique gathering spot for bike buyers and sellers all weekend.

The Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral is a centralized location where attendees can park and market their currently owned, for-sale, running motorcycles. As always, participants can still find motorcycles both new and old, running and non-running, in the swap meet portion of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.

“The Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral is a new feature at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this year, and we’re thrilled that The Federal Companies, the exclusive motorcycle transport partner of the AMA, is on location to offer any bike transport services that our attendees might need,” said AMA Special Events Manager Tigra Tsujikawa.

Said Allied Special Products Vice President and General Manager John Ainlay: “A lot of product changes hands at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days every summer, and we’re happy to provide safe, secure motorcycle transport to anyone whose trailer is too full after a long weekend of expanding their collection. Of course, AMA members should keep in mind that they receive a discount on shipping with The Federal Companies within the United States.”

Attendees who need motorcycle transport from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days are encouraged to see Federal/Allied representative Jackie Taylor, who will be on location at the Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral all weekend.

There is no pre-registration or fee for parking a bike in the Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral, although donations to the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum are encouraged. Space is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Any motorcycles left overnight will be the owner’s responsibility, and no security will be provided.

“AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days always draws a large number of bike traders, and the Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral is our way of helping organize the process and bring more buyers and sellers together,” Tsujikawa said. “We simply ask that motorcycles parked in the Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral be running, and that contact and pricing information be visible.”

The Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral will be located on the Mid-Ohio grounds where the auction was conducted in previous years. Anyone wishing to include his or her bike at the Federal/Allied Used Bike Corral should bring it to the infield location, fill out an information tag, and park it where instructed. Standardized for-sale information tags will be provided.
