"The Bull City Rumble is a world-renowned vintage motorcycle and scooter rally hosted by Ton Up NC annually on Labor Day Weekend in Durham, NC. Thematically, the event has its roots in the traditional rivalry of Mods vs. Rockers, the sensationalized clash of two youth cultures- scooter riding mods and motorcycle riding rockers, in 1960's England. The event has evolved from its humble beginnings in a parking lot in 2005 to a multi-venue, multi-day rally drawing thousands of enthusiasts from all over the world.The hosts, Ton Up NC, are a small nonprofit group of enthusiasts with a singular goal: to promote the riding, restoration and racing of vintage motorcycles. 2018 marks Ton Up NC's 14th anniversary as an organization and marks the 14th edition of the Bull City Rumble. When not organizing events, the members of Ton Up NC compete nationally in vintage dirt and road motorcycle racing.On Labor Day weekend, 2018 (Sept. 1st), downtown Durham will again be filled with the sights and sounds of vintage scooters, motorcycles and enthusiasts from all four corners of the globe. The historic Lucky Strike Tobacco Warehouses in Durham's Brightleaf District serves as the backdrop for the annual bike show on Saturday, September 1st where judges are not necessarily looking for the prettiest and cleanest machines but who are looking for well ridden bikes with personality and craftsmanship. Later, festivities move indoors to the Social for some of the finest burlesque dancers in the South, Rock and Roll music and refreshments.Make plans to come join us for one of the best two-wheeled events in the South: The Bull City Rumble September 1, 2018IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SPONSORING THE 2019 BULL CITY RUMBLE PLEASE CONTACT US AT bullcityrumble@gmail.com BIKE SHOW CATEGORIES INCLUDE: Vintage British (up to 1979)Vintage European (BMW, Guzzi, Ducatti etc. up to 1979)Vintage Japanese (up to 1979)Vintage American (up to 1979)Post Vintage (Older sport bikes)Retro Modern i.e. Modern Bonnie, Guzzi V7 Classic, Kaw w650 etc.Competition (vintage dirt/road race bikes)Vintage Scooter/MopedVintage Choppers (all makes)All entries must run.COST: FREE -General Admission -Bike Show Access, Motorcycle Parking on Main Street & After Party$25 -Complete Registration (T-Shirt, Patch, Bike Show Entry Form and Raffle Ticket)A la carte:$10 -Bike Show Entry Form$20 -Event T-Shirt$5 -Patches$5 Raffle TicketAll entries must run.THE SCHEDULE:Fri.
