The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) is a vintage motorcycle racing origination that puts on mostly motorcross races, but also holds road racing, dirt flat track, and trials events. The AHRMA was formed in 1984 as a private business. In 1989 it was reorganized as a member owned non profit organization.

During the 70s and 80s groups of riders began emerging around the nation organizing vintage motorcycle racing events. This started primarily with vintage roadracing clubs who were then joined by motocross, trials, dirt track and concours enthusiasts. Two of the most prominent of these organizations were the California Vintage Racing Group and in the southeast, the Historic Racing Association. It was decided that vintage motorcycle racing was now large enough to require a national organization the coordinate events, so in 1986 AHRMA was formed as a private-held business corporation, bringing together other groups in the first few years and becoming a non profit organization in 1989.[better source needed][1][2]

AHRMA Vintage Roadracing[edit]

AHRMA National Roadracing competition has classes for models from the 1920s all the way through 1990's, and with the recent addition of several modern classes that are run in the spirit of the classics, such as the Triumph Thruxton class, open two-stroke class and Battle of the Twins, there's something for everyone. AHRMA run events at Roebling Road Raceway, NOLA Motorsports Park, Willow Springs, Sonoma Raceway, Road America, Grattan Raceway, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Miller Motorsports Park, Barber Motorsports Park and Daytona International Speedway.[3][4]

AHRMA Vintage / Post-Vintage Motocross[edit]

Vintage motocross for machines up to 1974 (with a few exceptions allowed to 1976 if the bike didn't change) which is us usually run on the Saturday of events. Classes cater for all age groups through to the 70+ classes. The second is Post-Vintage motocross which is for machines from 1975 through to the mid 80's. This event is usually run on a Sunday as many riders will compete both days on different machines.[7]

AHRMA Observed Trials[edit]

Observed Trials events provide competition on vintage trials machinery produced up to the year 1979. Using the original no-stop rules unlike the stationary balance rules allowed in modern competition and riding on terrain including rock climbs, sand, mud, trees and other natural elements the riders get to test out their skills against both the course and each other. Classes range from Girder Fork Rigid models all the way through the Classic Japanese twin shocks such as the Yamaha TY and Honda RL range.
