August 12, 2010 - The Antique Motorcycle Foundation, an organization created to educate the public about the history of motorcycling, has unveiled its new website at www.antiquemotorcyclefoundation.org.

The non-profit, tax-exempt educational foundation was formed in 2007 through a restructuring of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America, the nationís largest organization of antique-bike enthusiasts.

Originally known as the AMCA Foundation, the organization took on the Antique Motorcycle Foundation name earlier this year to help focus attention on its mission to tell the public at large about the important role the motorcycle has played in the evolution of technology and culture in the industrialized world.

The Foundationís efforts to fulfill that mission have included the development of two exhibits of antique motorcycles at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The Foundation is currently working on an exhibit of historic racing motorcycles, called "Fast from the Past", that is expected to open early next year in the new Motocyclepedia Museum in Newburgh, New York.

The Foundation has also published a book, "Two-Wheeled Treasures", featuring the classic motorcycles owned by AMCA members that were part of its first museum exhibit. And it has helped provide funding for outreach projects, including an essay contest by the AMCAís Youth Program that gave one young person the chance to build an antique motorcycle from the ground up, under the supervision of experts in the field.

Visitors to the Foundationís website can find out more about all of those projects, get the latest AMF news, order a copy of "Two-Wheeled Treasures" or make a donation to help advance the Foundationís work.

"Our goal at the Antique Motorcycle Foundation is to share a little bit of the rich heritage of motorcycling with the general public" said AMF President Dennis Craig. "This new website gives us a way to keep people informed about those efforts and what they can do to help".
