The Motorcycle section is a very active part of the Vintage Car Club. We cater for all the various types of motorcycles, powercycles, scooters and anything else on one, two or three wheels that resembles a motorbike.
The main rallies are the Annual Rally in January/February, the Jim Toohey in March and the Girder Rally in October. However, in between there are rallies for scooters, powercycles, the odd hill climb, ruff runs/BBQs at the Island, a weekend trip to Waiau, and numerous day runs.
As well, if any member has a problem with their motorcycle, we have members who are willing to help solve the problems, and we can offer advice in buying/selling bikes, where to obtain parts, and where to get associated bits restored/made, etc.
