Former Yamaha France boss and legendary pilot Jean-Claude Olivier will be holding a sale of part of his personal collection at the Salon Moto Légende tradeshow, for the benefit of spinal marrow research!
So you can purchase jackets, gloves, helmets or jumpsuits for a good cause, and even several motorcycles, including the bike he used in the Dakar Rally in 1983, and his Superbiker 1985.
On November 27th, Jean-Claude Olivier will donate the entire proceeds to Professor Saillant towards spinal marrow research.
Jean-Claude Olivier will be in attendance at the tradeshow on Friday 16th in booth A11, and the sale will be held throughout the 3 days.
We hope to see many of you at booth A11, so you can have fun and help Jean-Claude Olivier support spinal marrow research!!!
Starting at 6:00 pm on Friday November 16th, the Morini Motorcycle Passion Club will be hosting Jean-Pierre Beltoise in its booth. It will be an opportunity for him to renew contact with a 175 Rebello double ACT, just like the one he rode in 1963 when he won one of his 11 French Champion titles, including 4 on a Morini Bike.
Jean-Pierre has always had a great fondness for those small Italian single-cylinder numbers, and he is sure to be given a rousing welcome by club members.
Just like club member Jean-Claude Costeux, any other pilots who have distinguished themselves riding a Morini are warmly invited to take part in this friendly event.
Passion for neo-retro is on the rise… And as the ultimate safe haven, the SALON MOTO LEGENDE tradeshow serves as a perfect illustration of the fact.
Take YAMAHA: they will be unveiling their new Yamaha Classic Service department at their booth, vouching for the quality of their work for visitors seeking to restore their Yamaha to its original condition. When you consider how hard it is becoming to find spare parts, this new department will be a godsend to owners of vintage Yamahas longing to rekindle their former jewel.
For its part, BLITZ MOTORCYCLES plays it innovative, revamping the vintage approach with creations that stand at the crossroads of Japanese and American custom culture with the “post-modern” artistic movement. Blitz Motorcycles undoubtedly commands respect with the way in which it recreates motorcycles on the basis of existing foundations, reworking the design so that the bike does not look like it did back when it came straight out of the factory. By way of illustration, the company will have their latest creation on display at the booth: a Kawasaki “Gentle Tracker”, based on the W650, for a trip into an altered past decked in decidedly avant-garde style. This virtually artistic movement actually succeeds in achieving a modern perspective while simultaneously paying due respect to the spirit of vintage bikes.
Also surfing on the vintage wave, ATS MOTORCYCLES made a decision 2 years ago to go back to its first love and to import machines built 30 years ago or more. This too is what SALON MOTO LEGENDE is all about!
