CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - If you like vintage motorcycles, downtown Cape Girardeau is the place to be on Tuesday, September 12.

Vintage is a bit of an understatement. The motorcycles have to be 1933 or older. We had a chance to check out a 1917 Harley-Davidson at Lawless Harley-Davidson. They’re one of the sponsors of the pre-1933 Cannonball stop.

Riders are going from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Oceanside, California, and they’ll stop in Cape Girardeau on Tuesday around 3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m.

The trip will take 16 days, over 3,800 miles, and keep in mind, some of the vintage motorcycles have a top speed of about 30 miles per hour.
