New Special Exhibits Open

 

Special-Exhibit-Main

Allstate Motorcycle Dirt Track Heroes presented by J&P Cycles includes over 30 race bikes and couple of dozen sets of racing leathers plus over 100 great pieces of dirt track racing artwork. Check out the huge racing history timeline. Walk through and read the bios of your favorite racers, 25 riders who won national championships from 1954 forward, the beginning of the GNC points system. There’s even a fun shop setting with race bikes on stands, equipment like a flow bench, a frame jig and Harley-Davidson race boss Dick O’Brien’s personal roller cabinet.

And when you visit have some fun in the new Scooters! exhibit. Look over the rare and interesting Salsbury, an innovative design from the late 1920′s, or study the tiny Doodlebug, made in Iowa. There is even a rare and stunning Rumi, an all polished aluminum two-stroke twin scooter made in Italy. Lambrettas and Vespas round out the traditional offerings from Europe, but when you visit you’ll find out what else is on view, but only through April, 2014.

    Just a short note, to let you know how much my son and I enjoyed our visit to the new museum earlier this summer. We were on our way through to Colorado and decided to check out the new facility,,,spent a great three hours touring everything. Many thanks, and keep up the good work,,,,sincerely Ed Deneen , 625 Southwest Road, Platteville, Wisconsin, 53818
