Knucklehead Company Bio: Knucklehead Company Ltd. – Founded in 1977 in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin by a group of enthusiastic fans of the Harley-Davidson overhead valve motorcycles (Knucklehead) produced between 1936 and 1947. Membership in the club required the ownership of a running bike of the genre. The group was formed on the premise of perpetuation of the spirit of motorcycle camaraderie of the 1940’s. The club has grown in membership over the past decades and 12 years ago an annual “reunion” was created to gather members past and present to celebrate the clubs long history. The club follows the belief of “Ride ‘em! Don’t hide ‘em!”

Badger Heritage Bio: The Antique Motorcycle Club of America – Founded in 1954 by a group of antique-bike fans in the New England area. In the decades since, the AMCA has grown to become one of the largest organizations of antique-motorcycle enthusiasts in the world, with 11,000 members in the United States and more than a dozen other countries. From the beginning, the purpose of the club has been the “preservation, restoration and operation of old-time motorcycles.” Members of the AMCA own, restore, preserve, study or just admire motorcycles that fall into the antique category, meaning they are at least 35 years old. The Badger Heritage Chapter are one of the 58 chapters worldwide! www.badgerheritage.com.
