Scooter vs. motorcycle. Slick suit vs. leather jacket. Mod vs. Rocker. Decades ago, this debate turned into all-out brawls in English resort towns like Brighton and Margate. These days, Mods vs. Rockers is less about dust-ups with deckchairs and more about showing off the vintage style, music and machines from a unique time in two-wheeled history.
To see what we’re talking about, you’ve gotta check out the 8th Annual Mods vs. Rockers Vintage Motorcycle & Scooter Rally, coming up on June 15 and 16, 2012, in Chicago. Started in 2005 by Ton Up Chicago, it’s the largest Mods vs. Rockers event in the country, bringing in hundreds of bikes, scooters and mopeds from around the region. Throw in food, live music and the city of Chicago as a backdrop, and you’ve definitely got one of the coolest bike events around.
So get that café racer tuned up and add a few more mirrors to the scooter... this one is gonna be good!
