Welcome to the Pewter Run..

Welcome to the Pewter Run..

Who we are:

The Pewter Run Celebrates the first fifty years of motorcycling in America. It is loosely patterned after two famous and long established "vintage" motorcycle events in the UK; The PIONEER RUN, an event for Pre-1915 motorcycles run by the Sunbeam M/C club" and the VMCC's BANBURY RUN, for Pre-1930 motorcycles.

The First event started and finished on the historic town common in Hillsborough Center, New Hampshire. This very picturesque setting is in the heart of rural New England with its many historic villages, fine homes, old inns and winding country roads. The premiere "first of its kind " AMA sanctioned event is organized and hosted by the United States Classic Racing Association, Americas oldest vintage racing organization

1909 Vintage Harley Police Motorcycle, The earliest police model in existence

At the dawn of the last century, Harley-Davidson recognized that its rugged and reliable motorcycles were perfectly positioned to service law enforcement. Back then, good mobility was vital, and a single-cylinder Harley-Davidson provided that at a time when our country was just beginning to make the transition from the horse and carriage to motorized transportation.

MotoSacoche This photo was taken by Creighton Demarest at the 2010 Larz Anderson Euro Bike Day, Sept 12, 2010. The balloons and card say Happy 100th birthday to the 1910 MotoSacoche. Seemed appropriate to mark the century for this un-restored old gem in the rough. 220cc single cylinder direct drive state of the art for its age. BTW David Roper rode this machine in the first ever Pewter Run in 2005. If I remember David's assessment; "it runs great down hill". A survivor from a bygone age. — Larger Image.





What People Say About Us

  • Dave Roper- Dave Roper Racing

    Last Sunday was the USCRA's Pewter Run.  This is a road ride for pre-1950 (and some 'like design' post '50) motorcycles.   I had done this a few times in the past on my '53 Moto Guzzi Airone Sport, which is substantially the same as when this model was revised in 1949, but it's apart at the moment awaiting my attention at the end of the racing season.  But, Mark Gibson, founder of the Pewter Run, came to the rescue.   He arranged a ride for me on Tony Lockwood's 1936 Excelsior Manxman 500.

    I recently heard the date for the 2010 running of the Motorcycle Pewter Run in New Hampshire is tentatively scheduled for October 3, 2010. That is a week after the end of the Motorcycle Cannonball Run. So....if you like to ride old (pre-1950s) and mostly original bikes with others, and you are in the New England area the Pewter Run might be a good choice for you. It is a one day time distance event in the back roads of New Hampshire. I went last year with my 1924 Harley JD and and 1948 Harley Panhead and we had a blast. Sure hope I can make it back from California with my Motorcycle Cannonball bike in time (and assuming it is still in decent running condition after riding it across the US).
