Our little museum in Dewey closed due to the owner lost interest in showing his collection. about 100 motorcycles from panhead to rare Hondas. He had a victory motorcycle from the movie the terminator, it had it's frame cut in several places so it could never be put on the road again. I'm still allowed in the shop/museum when it's covenant to the owner.
CARS SUCK!

Here is another addition to our motorcycle museum thread.

The Rocky Mountain Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame

http://www.themotorcyclemuseum.com/

Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado – in the mezzanine at Pikes Peak Harley-Davidson.

That is where @Webbtron hails from. Maybe he has firsthand knowledge.

The website is well done and one thing to note for anyone looking for old motorcycle parts (tagging @maniacmac ) is that they have a page dedicated to that.

I just received a link to this via email.  It tells about the museum at Red Rock HD in Las Vegas.

Our friends at the Harley Davidson Museum released another video. Here is their description.

Quote
Published on Jan 18, 2018
Born in 1936 to renowned engine tuner Leonard Andres, racing was in Brad Andres’ blood. In 1955, at the tender age of 18, he turned pro and competed in and won his very first Daytona 200. His record as the youngest winner still stands.

Andres was also named the AMA’s Grand National Champion during his remarkable rookie season. He enjoyed a short but storied career, capturing two more Daytona titles in 1959 and 1960. He retired soon after, and managed his family’s H-D dealership until 1976.

Come check out Brad's 1952 KRTT Road Racer in the H-D Museum's entrance.
