British & European Classic Motorcycle Day is one of the largest events of its kind, with a field full of all types of Classic British & European motorcycles; swap meet vendor area; Tech Talks; and much more. We are located in the rolling countryside of Maryland, close to Washington, DC and Baltimore. The all-volunteer staff has planned and produced this event for 15 years (30 years if you count the previous incarnation, ‘British Motorcycle Day’). We give back to the community, and have donated thousands of dollars to Montgomery County Police Explorers, a organization that gives our local youth a chance to explore what it is like have a career in law enforcement.
For 2018, British & European Classic Motorcycle Day featured marque is Norton Commando, commemorating its 50 year anniversary. There are over 15 Brit & Euro classes for the judged concours and over 75 plaques and ribbons to be awarded, and door prizes awarded to select Concours winners. The vendor area has Classic British & European parts and accessories, complete bikes, project bikes, maybe even that elusive piece you need to finish a bike you’re working on. The 2018 event poster (left) features a 1968 Norton Commando. We will have event T-shirts and posters available for sale the day of the event. We will also have a Tech Sessions presented by a classic motorcycle pros during the event.
The 2017 British & European Classic Motorcycle Day was well attended, guesstimates of 1350 attendees and 130 concours bikes. The quality of the concours was impressive, with original machines mingled in with full restorations and custom fabricated motorcycles of the highest caliber. A list of the 2017 Concours winners and a link to pictures and videos of earlier years’ events are on the ‘Past Years’ page. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and had a safe trip home, and we can’t wait to see you in 2018.
