Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum Offers 1953 Vincent Black Shadow for Auction

PICKERINGTON, OHIO - The AMA's Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is offering enthusiasts the opportunity to add a historic machine to their collection.
Beginning today, January 23, the Museum is auctioning a 1953 Vincent Black Shadow on eBay. The auction will run through February 1, 2009.

The 1953 Vincent Black Shadow on the auction block was restored by famed Vincent restorer Mike White of Ontario, Canada, and Brent Mayfield of Centerville, Ohio. The 1953 production is fully documented through copies of factory paperwork, and photos of the machine prior to restoration are available. The Vincent was originally purchased by the Museum specifically for the annual 2008 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum raffle. This year, for the first time, the winner of the Museum's raffle chose to accept an alternate cash prize instead of the motorcycle, allowing the Museum the opportunity to auction the 1953 Vincent Black Shadow. Riders can log on to and enter ID number 160311565061 to bid on the classic Vincent.
Winning the bike is a perfect way to kick-start 2009, and all proceeds will support the non-profit Museum and its mission of telling the exciting stories and preserving the history of American motorcycling.

In addition, enthusiasts can enter the 2009 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum raffle for a chance to win a pair of Bonnevilles. The 2009 raffle winner, to be picked during 2009 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, will be able to choose one of two prizes: a prize package valued at $35,000 featuring a fully restored 1959 pre-unit T120 Bonneville and an all-new limited edition 2009 50th Anniversary T100 Bonneville, or a $25,000 cash award. Tickets can be purchased at The AMA's Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum or by calling (614) 856-2222.

Fundraisers such as the Vincent auction and Triumph raffle - as well as the recently concluded 2008 Leather and Ice Online Holiday Auction - are vital to supporting the Museum's award-winning exhibitions as well as the Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which honors the men and women who shaped the industry and sport of motorcycling. Over 400 items donated by 142 museum supporters were up for grabs in the 2008 Leather and Ice Auction, which raised over $25,000 for the Museum. The Museum extends its gratitude to all those who helped make the 2008 auction such a success.

Enthusiasts interested in supporting the Museum's fundraisers in 2009 should contact Toni Shoap at (614) 856-2222 ext. 1340 or [email protected].
