Classic Swap Meet at Ashland County Fairgrounds February 8, 2009

Meet will honor Penton family and their machines

A new era of family-style motorcycle swap meets begins Sunday, February 8, 2009 in Mozelle Hall at the Ashland County Fairgrounds in Ashland, Ohio. The inaugural Classic Swap Meet by Will Stoner opens its doors at 8:00 AM.

Veteran motorcycle event organizer Will Stoner returns to his roots after a ten-year stint as Special Events Director for the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). “I’m grateful for my time at the AMA, but I’m excited about the opportunity to promote my own events and to develop some new projects” said Stoner. “Our goal is to develop a series of family-friendly motorcycling events that focus on the interests of the serious motorcycle enthusiast. I have always considered the motorcycling community part of my family. Now I have the opportunity host the family reunions. Additionally, we want to help pass on our passion for motorcycling to the next generation. With that in mind, all future motorcyclists age sixteen and under will be admitted free to all Classic Swap Meets by Will Stoner, when accompanied by an adult”.

The swap meet will feature all brands of motorcycles, parts, literature, memorabilia and accessories. Sharing the spotlight at the event will be a vintage motorcycle show. The show is open to all bikes 1989 or older, with awards in over ten classes up for grabs. Bike show entry fee is $10 for the first motorcycle and $5.00 for additional machines.

For extra “icing on the cake”, off-road champion, industry trailblazer and Hall of Famer John Penton and his son Jack Penton, multi-time ISDT medalist and fellow Hall of Famer will be the Guests of Honor. Additionally, Penton Motorcycles have been named the Featured Marque of the Meet. The Pentons will be on hand to sign autographs and chat with their fans. The Penton Owners Group (POG) will bring a display of significant Penton motorcycles.

Admission is $6.00 per person. Children under sixteen are free. Indoor and outdoor vendor spaces are $60.00 each.
