Support the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, Get a Custom Vanson Jacket!

You probably know the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is funded by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and relies on the generosity of the motorcycle community for support.

What you may not know is that supporting the HOF can — aside from making you feel really warm and fuzzy inside — put some very cool gear in your closet, including a very stylish and exclusive custom jacket from the folks at Vanson Leathers.

It’s true. Make a donation of $5,000 or more to the Hall of Fame and Vanson will build you a custom Hall of Fame-themed jacket to your exact, individual specs. Each jacket will be numbered, and includes a personalized patch sewn into the lining to remind you of your generosity and support.

There’s a range of other gifts for other levels of giving, too, including calendars, hats, lightweight jackets, pins, beanies and a special VIP Experience at this year’s AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course July 21-23.

These gifts are cool, no doubt, but it’s the support of the Hall of Fame that’s really key here. Your generosity allows current and future generations of motorcyclists to know the inspiring stories of motorcycling in America.

Take it from AMA Supercross and Motocross Champion James Stewart, who was inducted just last year: “Being inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame was perhaps the ultimate joy for me. As I said at the podium, ‘I’ve been chasing my whole life. Now I can stop chasing. I’m an AMA Hall of Famer!’ It truly was a career-defining moment for me.”

“All of this explains why I’m big supporter of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. I’ve come to realize over the years, and especially after my induction, that the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame’s mission to preserve and promote the heritage of American motorcycling is alive, and well, and important.”

“So will you please make a contribution to the Hall of Fame? By doing so, you’ll help preserve the effort to remember our great racers and visionaries, and help make the dreams of future riders and enthusiasts come true. We can’t imagine a world without motorcycles, but together we can ensure that the legendary stories of motorcycling live on — and that motorcycling thrives for generations to come.”

Thanks in advance for your support!
