Ed Youngblood, 1944-2024

Photo of Ed YoungbloodThe Antique Motorcycle Foundation (AMF) is very sad to announce that Ed Youngblood, 80 years old, passed away, after a lengthy battle with lung disease on March 10, 2024 in Florida. Ed was
a friend and supporter of the AMF since its inception including serving on the Board as a director and curator of the AMF's very successful "Kaizen" exhibit (The Influence of the Japanese Motorcycles) at the Motorcyclepedia museum in Newburgh, NY.

His unmatched experience involving motorcycle riders and groups, including serving as AMA President for 18 years, founding editor of Cycle News and so much more, helped the growth and stability of the AMF.

The Antique Motorcycle Foundation will always remember his smile, friendship, knowledge and steady guidance. Memorial plans will be announced as they become available.
