what we do

The Antique Motorcycle Foundation is a leader in the field of antique and vintage motorcycles. Since its inception, the AMF has been dedicated to inspiring the next wave of enthusiasts through the historic machines, legendary people and captivating culture that drive a pastime that is valued in numerous countries around the world.

The AMF has initiated and facilitated activities such as publishing books, conducting and sharing research, funding education, exhibiting motorcycles, identifying best practices and building a world class digital library. Over the years, the AMF has collaborated with numerous clubs, organizations, museums and businesses to support the greater antique and vintage motorcycle community.

Who We Are

In 2007, a non-profit, tax-exempt educational foundation—now called the Antique Motorcycle Foundation—was created during the process of restructuring the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. Part of the purpose of the foundation is to tell to the public at large the important story the motorcycle has played in the evolution of technology and culture in the industrialized world.

Since its inception, the AMF has made numerous efforts to accomplish its mission through various initiatives and activities. These efforts are organized and carried out by its volunteer board of directors, who are dedicated to the legacy of vintage and antique motorcycling and will ensure that you and other members of the public may enjoy vintage and antique motorcycling for years to come.
