"The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, with over 17,000 Members, united by a common appreciation of the engineering skills and vision of those who built the pioneer machines, has ensured that such machines are not preserved as lifeless exhibits in a museum, but are brought to life on frequent occasions in order that a new generation can marvel at the handiwork of the pioneers, and an older generation can once again view with nostalgia the machines they rode in days gone by."

 VMCC Membership Benefits 


The VMCC was formed in 1946 by a band of 38 enthusiasts and now boasts a Worldwide membership of over17,000!  However this figure has been achieved without losing any of the camaraderie or helpfulness which is usually associated with smaller clubs & you can receive specialist advice on every aspect of owning an older motorcycle.

But don't let the word "Vintage" fool you! Whilst catering for the very oldest pioneer machines the majority of our members ride post war-classics with many also owning modern machines as part of their "stable".

We cater for enthusiasts of all ages and levels of experience & you don't even have to own a motorcycle to become a member!  

We provide a huge range of benefits to meet individual members needs (many of them unique to us) including:-
