Mortons Open House - Vintage BMWs needed!

The DC Vintage BMW club is working to get as many older BMWs (loosely defined as airheads and pre-mid-90s K bikes) as possible for an "older BMW" show at Mortons Open House on April 16, 2005 9AM - 4PM. We currently have an R35, R51/3, R75/5 w/ Velorex 562, R69S, R75/5, R60/5, R60, and R60US. A few of these bikes are trailer queens, but most are ridden regularly. Your bike doesn't have to be a show bike - hose it off and come on down!

I suppose newish (though dirty!) oilheads with a goodly amount of miles and leaky rear shocks need not apply.

I'll be there on the first-year (November '69) /5, and we hope this will be the debut of Meredith's R51/3.

There will be a row of vintage bikes - don't just park out in the parking lot somewhere!

I'll check with SWMBO to see if she wants to bring her short-frame toaster down.

Event is 9AM to 4PM. That said, show up when you want to, and leave when you want to. If you get there midday and there is a big crowd, just don't run anybody over and if anybody official looking flags you down asay you're part of the vintage bike show.
