Magazines by the Ton
Interested in a ton of old British motorcycle magazines—literally?
A few years ago, the AMCA bought a one-ton lot containing about 4,000 to 5,000 mostly British motorcycle magazines from 1950 to 1990, weighing about one ton. The purchase was designated for a library project at the AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania, that did not develop.
So the Club is now offering this collection to members, collectors, vendors, etc. The collection will be sold in one lot. The magazines have been partially cataloged, and they include significant numbers of The Motorcycle, Motorcycling, VMCC Magazine, Bike, Classic Bike, Motorcycle Mechanics, Old Bike Mart, Motorcycle Weekly and other titles, plus some miscellaneous items. An incomplete list of the magazines is available in spreadsheet form from Club Treasurer Raymond Dhue, and potential buyers can examine the collection during the AACA Museum’s normal business hours.
Bids must be received December 20. You can send them to Dhue by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at P.O. Box 93430, Lakeland, FL 33804. If no satisfactory bid is received, the Club reserves the right to dispose of the collection by other means.
