PICKERINGTON, OHIO - The AMA's Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is offering
enthusiasts the opportunity to add a historic machine to their collection.
Beginning today, January 23, the Museum is auctioning a 1953 Vincent Black
Shadow on eBay. The auction will run through February 1, 2009.

The 1953 Vincent Black Shadow on the auction block was restored by famed
Vincent restorer Mike White of Ontario, Canada, and Brent Mayfield of
Centerville, Ohio. The 1953 production is fully documented through copies
of factory paperwork, and photos of the machine prior to restoration are
available. The Vincent was originally purchased by the Museum specifically
for the annual 2008 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum raffle. This year, for
the first time, the winner of the Museum's raffle chose to accept an
alternate cash prize instead of the motorcycle, allowing the Museum the
opportunity to auction the 1953 Vincent Black Shadow. Riders can log on to
eBay.com and enter ID number 160311565061 to bid on the classic Vincent.
Winning the bike is a perfect way to kick-start 2009, and all proceeds will
support the non-profit Museum and its mission of telling the exciting
stories and preserving the history of American motorcycling.

In addition, enthusiasts can enter the 2009 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum
raffle for a chance to win a pair of Bonnevilles. The 2009 raffle winner, to
be picked during 2009 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, will be able to choose
one of two prizes: a prize package valued at $35,000 featuring a fully
restored 1959 pre-unit T120 Bonneville and an all-new limited edition 2009
50th Anniversary T100 Bonneville, or a $25,000 cash award. Tickets can be
purchased at www.motorcyclemuseum.org or by calling (614) 856-2222.
