Vintage events coming up.

This Sunday September 27, the 37th annual Midwest Antique and Classic M.C. will be at the Boone County fairgrounds on Rt.176 in Belvidere IL. This is the BIG swap and show that was moved from Woodstock 5 years ago. Runs from 7 am to 4pm. Check out for more info.

Also coming up is the World Premier of the motion picture "Cafe' Society" at the Portage Theater on Milwaukee Avenue about a half block northwest of the Six Corners intersection of Cicero, Milwaukee and Irving Park road on the Northwest side . The film is produced by Cafe' Racer magazine and the World premier is sponsored by Ton Up Chicago.
There will be motorcycle parking reserved in front of the theater. Come out and see a film dedicated to the roots of sportbiking.

Also, coming up on Saturday October 3rd, is the TonUp Chicago/ChiVinMoto/Chicago Norton owners club Acetoberfest bike show & open house at Ace Motorcycle & Scooter Co. located at 1042 W. Jackson Blvd. in Chicago. There is also an after party. All the info on the movie and the Acetoberfest can be had at

As the riding season wanes...come & enjoy some vintage rides!
Hope to se alot of CLSBers there.

Lot of nice bikes at Boone County last year. I'm gonna try to make it up again.

Thanks for the reminder.
