The concentration of old motorized was another of the high moments of this party. Organized by friends of Old Mopeds "Passo Branco", the concentration brought together about half a hundred old engines, recalling the time between the 60s and 80s, when these motorcycles became democratized and produced some of the most mythical of portuguese manufacture, such as Casal Boss, Macal or the popular V5.
