This is our 40th year but 10 years ago Ross Metcalfe addressed the the club with a bit of interesting history.

Antique Motorcycle Club of Manitoba
30th Anniversary
Submitted by Ross Metcalfe
It is well known that Siggi and I organized the club back in January of 1977. The first meeting was held at the old Rothman’s board office on St. James Street.

There was free coffee and free small sample packages of cigarettes for all members who attended. It was an excellent meeting place.
In January of 1977, 16 members paid their $5.00 dues and thus began the AMCM. By the March meeting, the membership had swelled to 26.

Although some may say the first meeting constitutes a charter member,

I would like to let the record reflect that anyone who joined in 1977 would be referred to as a charter member.

And so, here they are:
