Thanks for attending the 2017 Alaska Vintage Motorcycle Show! Despite less-than-ideal weather in Palmer this year, we were excited to showcase several vintage bikes from builders and collectors across Alaska AND welcome “Elvis” for your entertainment.

Just in case you missed the announcement of the People’s Choice Winner, it was Donnie Schlemper's 1976 HD FLH chopper. Congratulations, Donnie!

If you enjoyed this year’s show, we’d appreciate you spreading the word to other vintage enthusiasts. We’re always searching for “new” vintage bikes and their builders to spotlight, and of course, for more Alaskans to know about this gathering place for likeminded individuals to share stories about their common passion.

Be sure to stay in touch with us throughout the year on Facebook @alaskavintageshow

See you in 2018!

About

About AVMS: The Alaska Vintage Motorcycle Show is an annual event showcasing a huge selection of vintage bikes alongside live music, food and great community. This event is my way of helping promote the preservation of motorcycles and the relationships developed through building in community. AVMS celebrates making genuine connections with people from all walks of life, bound together by a mutual appreciation for building something awesome. Registration for AVMS 2018 will open approximately May 1, 2018. Bookmark this site or follow us on Facebook @alaskavintageshow for show updates!

Support for AVMS: All AVMS registration fee proceeds help support Valley ABATE, an organization that facilitates the motorcycle safety courses here in AK. Valley ABATE is a large part of what keeps the show running smoothly and we are so grateful to have their support. Be sure to stop by their booth and thank them for all they do!

Here are some highlights from past years!
