“Vintage racing is attracting a whole new generation of competitors, drawn to the carefree fun that can be had on bikes such as this ’86 Honda CR250R,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “This motorcycle was made for one thing: having a great time on two wheels. I know the new owner will enjoy it just as it was meant to be enjoyed 30 years ago. Who knows, he or she might even ride it to an AMA national class title at next summer’s AMA Vintage Grand Championship during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.”The 2015 AMA Championship Banquet honors competitors who have placed first, second or third in AMA National Championship Series and at AMA Grand Championship events. Class Champions are set to receive medals and AMA #1 plates, while second and third-place finishers will also receive awards.
