About event:  The Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club (VVMC) hosted their 6th Annual  Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally  and  Miss Venice Vintage Pin-Up Contest on Sat. Sept. 14, 2013.   The day’s activities included a morning ride, food & beverages, rockin’ live tunes, photo booth, a raffle with $1000’s in prizes, a retro pin up contest, and vintage bike judging.

About VVMC:  The Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of vintage motorcycles and of motorcycle culture.  We honor the craftsmanship and inherent beauty found in the design of all vintage motorbikes as something potent, influential and representative of a time lost to history, where things were built with pride and made to last.

The VVMC is a band of brothers and sisters compromised of more than 20 individuals faithful to and united by the love of riding and maintaining old motorcycles.   Old bikes brought us together and we ride them like their maker intended.  Sometimes a little faster than that.

With our roots in Southern California, we are committed to supporting our community in Venice and maintaining inclusion towards others upon the alter of the old machine.  www.VeniceVintage.com
