Welcome to the Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club website! We are riders and enthusiasts of vintage, classic and antique motorcycles, based in historic Bastard Township. The Club is incorporated as a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting riding, biking and classic and vintage motorcycle related events. Originally based in a garage in historic Bastard and Burgess Township at Delta, Ontario, Canada, the charity based Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club is all about enthusiasts of vintage, classic, and antique motorcycles. Our annual 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 concours!
You don't have to have a bike, only a passion for old motorcycles! All are welcome to any gathering - we meet on the last Saturday of the month (Location posted on the rolling banner on the Website) for breakfast at 9:30am, or you can attend a breakfast meeting further north on the last Sunday of the month (details on the "Events" page...it changes from month to month) so come on out for a ride!

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'!
