The Greenwich Concours is pleased to partner with motorcycle racer and American Iron Magazine publisher Buzz Kanter to present A Century of Competition Motorcycles showcasing race-bikes of various styles from the early 1900s to present. “I’ve heard motorcycle racing started when the first motorcycle rider came across another on the road. And it’s been full throttle ever since.” Buzz Kanter claims. “This display honors the brave two-wheel competitors of the last century. We are thrilled to share a hundred years of race bikes at this year’s Greenwich Concours.”
