The AMCA week­end at Bulli, NSW on the 24-25 Au­gust 2019 is shap­ing up to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever, as this an­nual an­tique mo­tor­cy­cle event is turn­ing into a must-do on the en­thu­si­asts’ cal­en­dar.

2019 will see the in­cred­i­ble record break­ing Jack Ehret Black Light­ning Vin­cent make an ap­pear­ance – front and cen­tre at the event. This will give en­thu­si­asts a chance to see and hear this mighty ma­chine, as well as hear the story of this amaz­ing mo­tor­cy­cle at one of the many tech talks. There are al­ready many Vin­cent own­ers plan­ning to bring their bikes to join this icon and it looks like there will be at least one ex­am­ple of ev­ery model from 1928 on­wards. The swap meet has been grow­ing each year. As this is an all-bike swap and the only one like this in the Sydney re­gion, it is a unique op­por­tu­nity on the swap­pers’ cal­en­dar. An­other ad­di­tion to the swap will be a pre-1984 bike mar­ket, where en­thu­si­asts can bring their pre-84 bike to sell to a tar­get mar­ket, with some thou­sands of vin­tage bike en­thu­si­asts at­tend­ing. This is the per­fect place to pass a clas­sic on to a new owner. Prepa­ra­tions for the auc­tion are well un­der way and will be lim­ited to around 10 bikes in 2019. There are al­ready two very de­sir­able bikes listed and the or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for a few more pres­tige ma­chines to add to the in­ven­tory. The event is not­for-profit and is solely put on to pro­mote vin­tage, an­tique and his­toric mo­tor­cy­cles, 35 years and older. Make sure it’s in your di­ary!
