‘Antique Motorcycle Enthusiast Day’
Balderson Touts House Resolution
U.S. Rep. Troy Balderson (R-Ohio) introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives to recognize July 11 as “Antique Motorcycle Enthusiast Day.” The resolution, announced at the July 11 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Open House and Bike Night, celebrates those who restore and ride antique motorcycles, what these motorcycles represent in American history and the jobs supported by the restoration of these bikes.
“Restoring antique motorcycles is not only a passion for many Ohioans, it creates well-paying, highly skilled jobs for people in all 50 states,” Balderson said. “A beloved icon of our country’s past, antique motorcycles represent the rich history of Americana. I can think of no better way to honor those who cherish these patriotic symbols than by designating the Saturday after the 4th of July as ‘Antique Motorcycle Enthusiast Day.’”
The resolution is cosponsored by U.S. Reps. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) and Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), co-chairs of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus.
