Welcome to the Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club website!
Originally based in a garage in
historic Bastard & South Burgess Township in Delta, Ontario, Canada,
the Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club is all about a love of vintage, classic, and antique motorcycles. We are incorporated as a non-profit organization and are dedicated to promoting riding, biking and classic and vintage motorcycle related events.
Our annual club rally takes place on the weekend after Labour Day in September at Lower Beverley Lake Park in Delta. Events include bike games, dinner and dance, and, of course, the Sunday morning concourse! Additional events are held over the course of the riding season in the Ottawa Valley and surrounding area, most notably a Show & Shine held at Hotel Ladysmith, in Ladysmith, Quebec.
You don't have to have a bike, only a passion for old motorcycles! All are welcome to any gathering - we meet on the second Sunday of the month in the southern area for breakfast at 10:30am, or you can attend a breakfast meeting further north on the last Sunday of the month at 9:30am, so come on out for a ride! Location details posted on the rolling banner on our home page, as well as on the Events page...or check us out on Facebook!

The Northern Old Bastards (NOB's) had a great turnout at their rally up north.
Look for photos of the usual suspects, plus some newcomers, under "Rally Photos". For many years people have been bringing unique, old and new bikes to this plahttp://http://www.oldbastards.ca/1949.htmlce to celebrate our two wheeled addiction. Check out the rally photos for many classic and vintage bikes.
Please take note of our Northern section's (NOB's as we affectionately call them) upcoming events...details posted under 'Events'!
