Vintage and Modern Motorcycles in Portland, OR

For as long as I can remember, I have loved vintage and modern motorcycles in Portland, OR. This passion has led me to not only write about motorcycles and other related topics but to restore them as well. Currently, I operate a tool and repair shop where I rebuild Indian motorcycles from 1910 to 1953. I complete everything from expert engine work to manufacturing parts for them as well.

Motorcycles are important because many people use them as transportation. Plus, the industry has seen increased sales as more people can afford bikes to ride. I enjoy being a part of this amazing world. Contact me today to learn more about my motorcycle book.

Additionally, I am involved in the Antique Motorcycle Club America (AMCA), which is an organization that has over 12,000 members. I also used to run a local race track. If you're interested in learning more about me, Vahan Dinihanian Jr., feel free to send me an email. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have via email at  

The Evolution of My Writing

When it comes to my writing, it has evolved throughout the years. As I learn more about different vintage motorcycles and their history, my writings reflect this growing knowledge. This is why I was inspired to start writing "Cannonball Run 1919: A Transcontinental Motorcycle Journey" in 2015.

While purchasing a 1918 Indian motorcycle Powerplus 27 years ago, the owner shared that he had a diary written by the bike's original owner, his grandfather Erling J. Hangerud. I bought the bike and accepted the diary, with all of his photographs, which detailed Erling's journey from Portland, OR, to New York City with his cousin Fred (Fritz) Kunkel to the Cannonball Run, which is a yearly endurance event that is still held today. Just this year, 132 riders rode from Portland, ME, to Portland, OR. The event is scheduled to take place again in 2020. Then, every other year after that.
