Springfield City View

Welcome

Welcome to the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club Springfield Mass Inc. website. Our Chapter is part of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers/Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC). The NABSTMC has over 118 Chapters throughout the country. Our chapter was chartered in September 2004. And since that time, we have supported the City of Springfield and surrounding communities in many ways, such as the annual Colonial Estates Kids Safety Day, Secret Santa Event for the elderly, the Stone Soul Picnic, Caribbean Parade, as well as, the Colonial Estates Halloween Party.


The City of Springfield, Massachusetts has made several contributions to the history and the culture of the United States of America and a trip to Springfield is just not complete without visiting the following points of interest:


The Springfield Armory Museum. The Springfield Armory played a major role in supplying weapons and ammunition to the Massachusetts 54th Infantry Regiment of Buffalo Soldiers.


The Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company. Indian motorcycles were manufactured from 1901 to 1953 by a company in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, initially known as the Hendee Manufacturing Company which was subsequently renamed the Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company.


The Basket Ball Hall of Fame. Native Dr. James Naismith's first concept of the sport involved a peach basket, and its subsequent evolution is detailed, step-by-step at the Basketball Hall of Fame Museum.

As we continue to contribute to those in need, be it through physical support following a natural disaster or providing financial support through our fundraising and scholarship efforts, one thing remains constant. We care for and about our neighbors, fellow riders and nation. I welcome you to join us in our mission.
