The 2024 Scotts Valley Motorcycle Concours

SHOW DETAILS

Last year, the Scotts Valley Motorcycle Concours saw 100 bikes on display, a crowded field of spectators, and 16 beautiful trophies are now on display on the entrant's home shelves. We're confirmed to return to Skypark in 2024 and expect a bigger and better show.

Welcome to the 2024 Music at Skypark & Motorcycle Concours.  Music at Skypark returns for its 15th season and the second season with vintage motorcycles.  The August kickoff concert will include The Scotts Valley Motorcycle Concours, a vintage motorcycle show with proceeds benefiting the music programs at Scotts Valley schools.  

 

The Scotts Valley Kiwanis Club, Motocharities, and Motonexus Motorcycle Auctions have partnered to bring you Music at Skypark & Vintage Motorcycle Show, hosted on the lawn at Skypark in beautiful Scotts Valley, California. Vintage motorcycle collectors from all over the region will proudly display their exceptional bikes and compete for trophies.  Bring the whole family for a full day of vintage motorcycles, fabulous local food, beer, wine, and live music. Skypark has amenities for the whole family, making this a true community event for everyone to enjoy.  Scotts Valley is a terrific destination for a weekend getaway.  Check below for hotels, resorts, and RV parks.

 

Motorcycle collectors, racers, and restorers will display a broad range of motorcycles showing the evolution of vintage and modern motorcycles, scooters, and race bikes. With classes for American, British, Italian, Other European, Japanese, Antique (1922 and earlier), Custom/Modified, Competition-Road Racing, Land Speed, Motocross & Scramblers, Trials, Flat Track, Drag Bike, Minibikes & Scooters, and eBikes, there is something for everyone.  This is a display-only event; for the benefit of nearby neighbors, we ask that owners do not start their bikes.

The entire event is free for spectators.  Motorcycle owners pay a nominal fee to have their bikes on display and judged for trophies.  To enter your bike, click here: ENTER YOUR BIKE

The Scotts Valley Motorcycle Concours welcomes motorcycles in original stock condition, restored, and customized.  If your motorcycle is designed for off-road use, please select the appropriate class for judging when you register.  While the SVMC encourages motorcycles from 1980 and earlier, we will not reject those in excellent condition between 1980 and 1998.  

 

The Custom/Modified, Land Speed, and eBike classes have no model year restrictions. We encourage all throttle-only eBike manufacturers and home-built eBikes to enter the eBike class to display your latest models, innovations, and creativity.

Barn Find Unrestored are bikes that are still in original condition, with original parts, bodywork, and paint, even if it's rusted.  Extra points are awarded to Unrestored bikes that are still operational, licensed to ride, and older is better.  Judges will not mark down for replacing tires, spark plugs, and other general maintenance items.  This class is open to all makes and models.

Please bring your own signage that details the motorcycle's features, historical significance, race history, and provenance.  We ask that signage be kept to an 8.5" x 11" board or acrylic display.  Tool kits, manuals, and other historical accessories may be displayed separately in shadow boxes or any other discrete and creative way.  A limited number of boards will be available to place under your center or side stand.  You are encouraged to bring your own board.  WE DO NOT ALLOW BIKES TO USE CENTER OR SIDE STANDS DIRECTLY ON THE LAWN.  Bikes with no stand will need to provide a display stand or box.  Minibikes or any other bike that is very small may be displayed on elevated stands.

Motorcycles on display are competing for trophies but are also for the enjoyment and entertainment of the spectators.  This is a family event; many children are always excited to see the motorcycles.  In many ways, the motorcycle show is educational and inspirational for the children.  Please respect that your display should be appropriate for the entire family.
