Big thanks to Collin Christenbury for sending in these shots he took at the Vintage Motorcycle Races & Show in Elkhart Lake this year. Some beautiful bikes in attendance including the Honda CB550 Cafe Racer called “Cafe Overkill” that was splashes all over the web back in 2010.

Organised by the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) the event took place in June and include “practice” racing, a classic swapmeet and a “moving bike show”. Combine all that with 3 days of camping and it was sure to be one hell of a fun day!
