July 8th 2015: An Evening with Gentleman Jim

Special Guests: Jim Petty, three-time Motorcycle Cannonball rider, vintage collector, and owner of “Gentleman’s Choice Motorcycles”

Looking back to the early days of motorcycling, one thing was clearly evident: the style and taste of both motorcycle design and their riders was exceptional. Enthusiasts in the early days of motorcycling could be found quietly motoring in a top hat and three piece suit, or tucked behind drop handlebars blasting around the track in leather helmets and wool sweaters. Simply put, the classiness of the era was unparalleled; it was, after all, the era of gentlemen. The attire and attitude of the Gentleman’s era has taken its own form in today’s motorcycle enthusiasts. This week, we at Classic Chrome are honored to be joined by one man who exemplifies the persona and era of a gentleman and his mount. Our guest this week is Jim Petty, who is the man behind “Gentleman’s Choice Motorcycles.” Petty is a dedicated lover of all types, brands, years, and sizes of motorcycles. Alongside his brother Steve, Jim has undertaken the restoration and preservation of many different motorcycles over the years, as well as promoting their avid use. “Gentleman Jim” is a three-time veteran of the coast-to-coast Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Race. Be sure to join us at 7pm central as we sit down for a look into the vintage motorcycle world through the eyes of Gentleman Jim.
