Indian Motorcycle Named Presenting Sponsor of ‘The MEET at ACM’

America’s Car Museum will also raffle a 2015 Indian Chief Vintage to benefit education program

America’s Car Museum (ACM) has announced that Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, will be a presenting sponsor at the fourth annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival: The MEET at ACM, in Tacoma, Washington, on August 22.

Indian Motorcycle has a history dating back to 1901 with current models such as the Chief and Scout, and the new Roadmaster. As the featured brand, guests can expect to see a wide cross section of Indian motorcycles from the early 1900s through the end of the Springfield era production in 1953. The latest generation of Indian motorcycles, backed by Polaris Industries in 2011, continues the tradition of quality, power and style that kept Indian Motorcycle a household name for over a century.

“Indian has a rich heritage of two-wheeled American freedom and respect both our history and the future of the brand,” said Julie Elepano, Indian Motorcycle Marketing Manager. “This event brings together fans of this brand and the long and stunning history of motorcycling so we are naturally proud to be part of the coming weekend.”

Visitors to the Vintage Motorcycle Festival can expect to see more than 325 vintage motorcycles from the early 1900s through to 1990. There will also be other motorcycle brands on ACM’s Haub Family Field along with vendors of riding gear, helmets and OEM accessories.

During the award ceremony at the Vintage Motorcycle Festival, ACM will raffle a Willow Green and Cream 2015 Indian Chief Vintage, which features a 111 cubic-inch “Thunder Stroke” v-twin motor and traditional Indian Motorcycle trimmings, including leather seats and saddlebags, laced wheels, valanced fenders, fringed leather saddle bags and the brand’s traditional War-Bonnet front fender light.

“Indian Motorcycle is an instantly recognizable name when it comes to vintage bikes and we are glad to have them presenting this year,” said ACM president and CEO David Madeira. “The Museum displays some great motorcycles year-round and hundreds more will be at The MEET.”
 
Net proceeds from the Vintage Motorcycle Festival will benefit the Hagerty Education Program at America’s Car Museum, which provides hands-on training and a pathway to careers in automotive restoration for young adults.
 
Raffle tickets are available at the Museum for $20 each or in bundles of six for $100, and the winning ticket will be drawn at The MEET on August 22. For more information on the event, visit www.vintagemotorcyclefestival.com.
