Vintage Motorcycle Show Fills Downtown Palisade
KREX News Room
PALISADE, Colo. Motorcycle enthusiasts from Colorado and several other states traveled to Palisade on Saturday for the fifth annual Vintage Motorcycle Show.
Organizers say the event allows folks to come together and experience the history of motorcycles. This year, more than 90 were on display in downtown Palisade. The bikes hailed from New Mexico, Utah and all over Colorado.
Winners of the show receive bragging rights and trophies made out of motorcycle parts.
Organizer Rick Barnes said, "There's always pretty special motorcycles here. They're ranging anywhere from the early 1900's all the way up to, vintage we consider 25 years and older, so all the way up to the mid 80s motorcycles out here. We've got some really nice European classes, the European Class is going to e a really hard one to judge this year."
The event also raises money for a good cause, Operation Interdependence (OI). The organization sends care packages to troops overseas. Officials say they raised enough money last year to cover OI shipping costs for several months, and hope to do the same this year.
