Founded in 1977, the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC) is the premier worldwide club dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of vintage Japanese motorcycles (20 years old or older) and the promotion of the sport of motorcycling. The VJMC hallmark is “participation at all levels and to have fun” – for all motorcycle enthusiasts young and old.
Thousands of members enjoy the many benefits offered by the VJMC, including our bi-monthly “Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Magazine” dedicated to vintage motorcycling. One of the most highly regarded vintage motorcycle publications in the world, the VJMC magazine includes stories related to vintage bikes and the people who ride them, technical and restoration tips, coverage of bike shows, rallies, and local events, and classified ads. Annual VJMC membership is only $35 USD.
We also offer members-only content on this web site including recent classifieds, tech tips and articles, free digital back-issues of the magazine, an extensive members’ bike photo archive, video clips and slide shows, a VJMC regalia store, and registration information for various VJMC events.
The VJMC is governed by a national Board of Directors with representation from nearly all of 10 Regions throughout the United States and Canada. The Board of Directors has appointed field representatives in many states and provinces who implement national policy and standards, conduct state or regional events, and assist in organizing a VJMC presence at other vintage motorcycle events.
A complete list of Field Representatives, Officers and members of the VJMC Board of Directors can be found on the web site and is periodically published in the club magazine. This is an all-volunteer organization, to help make things happen and to get the maximum amount of satisfaction from the club, your involvement is needed.
