The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is currently raffling off two incredible motorcycles: a 1986 Honda CR250R and a 1947 Indian Chief.
The drawing for the CR250, a throwback to the mid-1980s, when Hall of Famers like Rick Johnson and David Bailey were winning titles for Honda, will take place at the AMA Championship Banquet in Columbus, Ohio, on Jan. 23, 2016.
