By General Posts


Metal305, the guys who've been putting on the Thursday night vintage bike get-togethers outside of Wood and Lester's in Miami since July, are hosting a Black Sunday swap meet for vintage motorcycle enthusiasts.  
Founders Matt Atkatz and Alex Mackenzie started Metal305 because, Matt says, they wanted to "help build and support the vintage motorcycle scene in South Florida." They both had an interest in vintage Italian bikes and met on, of all places, Instagram. They added in Aaron Willard, and now the trio are growing a scene that's expanding throughout the tri-county area. Next month, a group of guys involved in these meet-ups are organizing a similar event at Fort Lauderdale's 5 Points Lounge.
