On Sunday morning the UTZ Arena at the York Fairgrounds opens to a full hall of mostly vintage and some modern parts and bike vendors. Every year the crowd grows with many looking for those hard to find parts and those two-wheel gems from days going by.



There is a vintage bike show that’s second to none that’s hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Bikes from the Broom Works in Baltimore, MD. In talking with Mike Slate one of the shows promoters he shared that at least 80 of the 100 entries were new to the show this year and the number was most likely more than that. 


This year’s People’s Choice award went to Steve Dance from Jarrettsville, MD featuring his 
1951 twin piped Triumph Trophy.


Another really cool piece was this 1985 Rotax powered Tiger 200 trike
displayed by Blueline Graphics.

PVR Swap Meet and Bike Show - Sunday January 26, 2020

The Potomac Vintage Riders Swap Meet and Bike show is only days away, so it’s time to clear the calendar and gas up the van and point it towards the Utz Arena at the York Fairgrounds in York, Pa. 



This coming Sunday January 26th 2020   The Swap Meet/Bike Show runs from 8 am -3:30 pm.  The move to the larger UTZ Arena at the York, PA Fair allowed us to have the largest crowd ever. Well over 2500 people in its second year. This year we will have 20 more vendor spaces within the swap meet. The event attracts vendors from all over the East coast and Midwest and has grown into one of the biggest Swap Meet/Bike show events of the year. (matter of fact, vendor space has been sold out for weeks)

The “Bike Show” organized by the Nick Taylor and the Broomworks crew attracts over 100 of the finest vintage motorcycles and is a huge crowd pleaser. The show is judged, awards custom trophies and also allows you to select the “People’s Choice Award” for best bike.



We will have the Penton Group (John and Jack) with their display and Terry Cunningham returning again to bench race with and sign autographs.  Terry is a four-time AMA Grand National Enduro Champion, ISDE Gold Medalist and AMA Hall of fame inductee. The Pentons, well they need no introduction.



The “Bike Corral” will showcase the vintage bikes for sale. This area is a great success with easy access and ample room for viewing.   



So whether you’re looking for parts to finish a restoration, a new project to start, finding a finished gem to purchase, or just meet up with old friends, it’s all here under one roof.  You won’t want to miss it!!!!



Bike corral and other event information are available from Tommy Grimmel, PVR President.

2019 ECEA Awards Banquet - Valley Forge Pa

It was a night of celebration as the members of the East Coast Enduro Association and ECEA Harescrambles Series gathered at the Valley Forge Casino and Convention Center to recognize their 2019 champions.



As always the house was full at this annual event. Both enduro and harescramble racers gather under one roof to present awards to some of the fastest riders this country has to offer. The ECEA has been notorious over the years for producing not only local but National and International champions. This association that was formed in 1972 continues to offer one of the best off road programs this country has to offer.


This annual event always kicks off with an afternoon vendor fair.


A little different format this year saw the ECEA award their 100% Club members mid afternoon.


All riders from the above two images attended every Harescramble round in 2019.
