ARTIFACT: Fabulous Iconic 1925 American Motorcycle Association AMA Gypsy Tour watch fob. 1925 was the first year the AMA sanctioned the tour. Gypsy tours comprised of a group of riders from all over that would converge on a favorite destination, the term gypsy was used because of the far reaching corners of the country, and later the globe, that the riders would come from, camping and sleeping in tents along the way. The annual gypsy tour to Laconia, New Hampshire near Lake Winnipesaukee began in 1916 and is the oldest continuous motorcycle event in the US. The triangular watch fob is made of enameled & silver plated brass and reads: GYPSY TOURS 1925 with an enameled triangle at center with the swirled yellow, green, and red AMA Logo surrounded by the letters A M A and the reverse of the fob reads: "PERFECT SCORE - NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE GYPSY TOUR - 1925"

The 100th anniversary of this historic event is coming up in 2025!
