Clematis Vintage Motorcycle show this weekend

Royal Enfield is a sponsor of Vintage Motorcycle Festival in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Royal Enfield USA is a sponsor of the Inaugural Iron & Clematis Vintage Motorcycle Festival Saturday and Sunday Feb. 8-9 in Palm Beach County, Florida.

More than 200 vintage motorcycles should be on show Saturday on the 500 block of Clematis Street in historic downtown West Palm Beach. It's free to look. Unlike many motorcycle shows it starts in the afternoon and goes into the evening. Hours are 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The next day, Vintage Track Day Sunday puts motorcycles in motion at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter.

Bikes are encouraged to meet at O’Shea’s & Longboards Irish pub at 531 Clematis St. from 8-10 a.m. Sunday. They'll head to the track, "where high speed pros will be on the course throughout the day, and vintage motorcycles will be allowed on the track for street speed-style parade laps and or Fast Track simulated racing."

There's a modest entrance fee to watch those with faith in their machines take to the track.

The event is organized by local Vintage Iron Club. The group's Facebook page promises "over 200 vintage motorcycles and scooters, four live bands, pinup models and fashion show contest, 38 local and national vendors, and after all that you can ride your vintage bike on a two-mile road course."

The club describes itself as "Looking for like minded people with 25 years or older bikes. Who love their vintage metal (bikes and music!), and or cafe racer fans and riders!"

That's everyone, right?
