Antique Motorcycle Club of America - Sanctioning Organization

Chix on 66 could never have been more than a cool idea that never happened if it weren’t for support from the Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA). Chix on 66 is an AMCA event hosted by the newly formed Riveter Chapter.

The Antique Motorcycle Club of America was founded in 1954 by a group of antique-bike fans in the New England area. In the decades since, the AMCA has grown to become one of the largest organizations of antique motorcycle enthusiasts in the world, with 12,000 members worldwide.

From the beginning, the purpose of the club has been the “preservation, restoration and operation of old-time motorcycles.” Members of the AMCA own, restore, preserve, study or just admire motorcycles that fall into the antique category, meaning they are at least 35 years old. Although the Club is based in the United States, fans of motorcycles from all countries are welcome, and ownership of an antique motorcycle is not required to become a member.

AMCA Executive Director Keith Kizer says, "Women have always been an intricate part of the AMCA, yet overshadowed by their male counterparts in regards to public exposure. Of the handful of Honorary Members of the club, four are women. It's high time that the women who are active in club activities step into the limelight. The Riveter Chapter is a whole new approach on chapter activities, focusing not on the location of the person, but on the common bond of interest of the individuals."

“As the demographics of motorcyclists have changed, it made sense to create a women-focused chapter of the AMCA, which is where the Riveter Chapter comes into the picture,” says Riveter Chapter President Karan Andrea. “I was looking for advice from Keith Kizer on how to make this Route 66 ride happen, figuring he would give me a few names and ideas, and wish me luck. Instead, he suggested that I create this chapter and host the event through the new chapter.”

The Riveter Chapter of the AMCA (Host Chapter) which has a nationwide membership, is the first woman-focused chapter of the AMCA. The purpose of this chapter is to give women motorcyclists an increased awareness of their own history, and an enhanced vision of their future in motorcycling. By bringing female AMCA members together in a single chapter, we intend to raise the visibility of women in the sport and concentrate their talents under the aegis of a single chapter.

Many women riders are unaware of the rich legacy of female riders and may feel disconnected from their contemporaries. We intend to increase women’s awareness of each other. We also intend to improve access to other women in the sport through visibility and networking. Many women may have never seen a female mechanic, nor have they seen another woman ride or race a vintage bike. For these reasons alone, a chapter containing powerful, talented, dynamic women helps to fill that void, and fills the space with inspiring role models.

The focus of this chapter will be on sharing the history of women in motorcycling, and supporting contemporary women riders. They will see women riding and wrenching just like they have been doing since not long after the first motorcycles were built. We hope this will challenge and inspire our members to reach for goals they may never have considered previously.

As the largest growing market segment in the sport of motorcycling, our past must press forward in order to shape our future.
