If you love motorcycles, then you owe yourself a visit to the Philippine Moto Heritage Weekend. Ongoing until tomorrow (November 6) at the Metrotent Convention Center in Ortigas City, the event started out back in 2018 as a celebration of motorcycling’s rich history.

Organized by Ride PH, the fifth running of the event brings together a priceless collection of lovingly restored classics ranging from ’50s-era Lambrettas to modern-day classics, custom jobs, and neo-retro-themed bikes.

Aside from test rides and great deals from participating vendors, there’s also a fascinating gallery of motorcycle-themed artworks curated by Secret Fresh.

With every year seeing manufacturers churning out ever more tech-laden motorcycles, it’s always refreshing to see that there’s still a massive following for old-school machinery.

Now, if you can’t make it, here’s a quick gallery to see what you can expect from the event.
