This weekend is the Gilmore Vintage Motorcycle Ride on Saturday and the Vintage Motorcycle Show on Sunday. There will be a group of Vintage Rice Burners riding to Gilmore on both days. We'll be meeting at the Burger King in Hastings and leaving for Gilmore at 8:30 AM both days.

All makes are welcome but they must be at least 25 years old to participate in the ride and the show. Everyone is welcome to ride with the group to the show but only vintage motorcycles can enter.

This is one of the best motorcycle shows around and the Vintage Rice Burners have taken several trophies over the years.

Honda CX500 Fender

The original fender on my Honda CX500 was pitted and dented so I was looking for an alternative. One of my other motorcycles is a Yamaha XS360 with a front fender that was pretty faded so I found a replacement on ebay. The XS fender seemed like a good candidate for the CX so I cut the mounting tabs off and drilled it to fit on the stock Honda fender bracket. I really like using parts from different bikes and making something that looks like it came that from the factory.

Official Vintage Rice Burners T-Shirts

I am down to the last Vintage Rice Burners T-Shirt in stock. If there is enough interest I will put in an order for more T-Shirts. I have to have a minimum order of 25 shirts to get a good price. The price would probably be around $15 each including shipping.

Let me know how many and what size you would want and if enough people want a shirt I'll make an order.
