To enter your bike and for further info, please RSVP to

However, pre-registering your bike is NOT required.

Registration will be an informal checking in at Bonaparte Antiques, 375 Farnsworth Ave. We ask that you check in no later then 10AM, as Farnswoth Ave. will be closed to vehicular traffic shortly thereafter.

Judges will be awarding trophies in the following categories:
"There Will Always Be An England", Best Brit Bike
"The Gina Lollobrigida Sexy Italian Award", Best Italian Bike
"The Erwin "Cannonball" Baker Trophy", Best American Bike
"Das Vaterland Ehrt Ihr Motorrad", Best German Bike
"The Honjo Masamune", Best Japanese Bike
"The Isaac Dripps Award For Engineering Excellence", Best Custom Bike
"The Gloria Gaynor, I will survive / Rust Never Sleeps Award", Most Elegant Patina
"2nd place is the 1st loser", Best Competition Machine
"The Democracy in Action "People's Choice" Award"

Awards ceremony will take place at 3:00PM.

As Farnsworth Ave. will be CLOSED for the duration of the festival, we ask that:
1) Participants check into registration at 375 Farnsworth Ave. by 10:00AM so that bikes can be placed before the festival starts at 11 and the roads closed to vehicular traffic.

2) The show's main sponsor, the Downtown Bordentown Asscociation, is a non-profit 501c6, who's mission is to: "Promote Bordentown City as a great place to live, work , dine, shop and have fun—all within a peaceful, historic setting". To that end, so as to defray the costs of the show and to help the D.B.A. in its mission, each entrant is asked to make a suggested donation of $5.00 to the D.B.A. at registration.

3) In a change from last year; participants will NOT be requirement to remain in place till the festival's end at 4PM, as there will be egress via a side street while Farnsworth Ave. is closed. However trophies will only be awarded to motorcycles still present at the award ceremony.

For show participants trailering or otherwise transporting their bikes to the show, there will be parking for your transport vehicle in close proximity to the show.

The gunning of engines, or the making of unnecessary or excessive racket will NOT be tolerated, and the show participant will be told to knock it off IMMEDIATELY.

This is a rain or shine event, except in the EXTREMELY unlikely event that the festival is cancelled due to weather Sunday morning. This has NEVER happened.

To enter your bike and for further info, please RSVP to

We hope to see you there!
