Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show
Story and photos by Martin Twofeather
Clive Taylor and Clare Frost hosting the 8th annual show raised $6,000.00 for Stray Aid & Rescue and had a great time doing it with almost perfect weather and over 300 vintage bikes to look at and some to buy if you were in the mind to get a late model motorcycle. Your choice was huge from Harley to Honda, BMW to custom-made and even a Morgan if you had a mind to sit inside a three wheeler with comfortable enough seats and shift a 5 on the floor.
The park over flowed with people from all walks of life enjoying the entertainment and vendors’ wares. There was a great independent motorcycle skill team in the front street as I arrived that were very good and well trained. Other activities included field games, vendors, antique bicycle display, skateboard demos, live music along with a swap meet and the roller derby girls.

On the ride home I stopped by Eddie Trotta's Thundercycles to see what is new and then as I rode down by the beach I took a photo of our beach which by then was overcast but still around 80 degrees. It was a great day in the park.
