It was an excellent day for a bike show at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds.
The parking lot was a prelude to the show, put on by the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club and the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. Both clubs did a fantastic job presenting museum quality displays with bikes that ranged from well preserved survivors to absolute showpieces.
