Buyers and sellers of used motorcycles will have an easier time finding each other this July 24-26 at AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) Vintage Motorcycle Days in Lexington, Ohio, thanks to a centralized location where traders can market currently owned, for-sale, running motorcycles.
"Anytime you get a lot of motorcyclists in one location, such as what we see at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, you also attract a large number of used bikes for sale," said AMA Special Events Manager Tigra Tsujikawa. "The AMA Used Bike Corral is our way to help organize the process and bring more buyers and sellers together. We simply ask that motorcycles parked in the AMA Used Bike Corral be runners, and that contact and pricing information be visible."
There is no pre-registration or fee for parking a bike in the AMA 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. AMA members can put up to two bikes in the corral; non-members are allowed one bike. Any motorcycles left overnight will be the owner’s responsibility. No security will be provided.
"The AMA Used Bike Corral is an area where sellers can park their for-sale motorcycles, and we believe it will become another top attraction at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days," Tsujikawa said. "I know I’ll certainly enjoy walking through the Corral just to see what’s available."
Tsujikawa added that the AMA and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum are neither parties to, nor the guarantors of, any transaction, and that parts bikes, rolling chassis, and parts or assemblies must still be sold in purchased space in the swap meet area.
The AMA 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 AMA 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.
