Vintage Motorcycles, Epic Rides
Speed Deluxe Vintage Adventures
Love vintage motorcycles and looking for a motorcycle adventure unlike any other? Then, we have the trips for you: vintage motorcycles (pre 1981), fully supported, guaranteed camaraderie, and scenic camping.
Off-road rides (75% off road, 150-250 miles/day) include our Western Vintage 1000 (~1000 miles, 5 days), Southeastern Vintage 1000 (~1300 miles, 6 days), Baja Vintage 1000 (5 days), and the Vintage 500 (~500 miles, 3 days).
Our on-road ride is the Vintage Tour de Appalachia, a scenic tour through the Appalachian Mountains on some of the best back roads in the Southeast if not the United States.
Vintage motorcycle endurance events since 2015
We started Speed Deluxe Vintage Adventures because we wanted to combine epic road trips with vintage motorcycles – two things we love. And, we’ve discovered others do too. So, we’re here to enable your adventures on your (present or future) vintage motorcycle.
It all started with the Vintage 1000.
Now in its ninth year, the Vintage 1000 was inspired by a conversation between Adam Sheard (Speed Deluxe) and his friend Chastin Brand after participating in a motocross race. Adam thought – what about an event involving riding vintage bikes (pre-1980) 1000 miles off-road over 5 days? Harking back to the days of enduro events where you have to fix your bike as you go and make it to pre-scheduled stop points each evening.
Some people think we’re nuts – we’re just having fun.
