Ever since the invention of early bicycles, people have searched and experimented with various ways to make transportation more automated and faster. Although putting a motor on a bicycle was deemed crazy at the time, centuries later the motorcycle has become a social and cultural symbol, a symbol of freedom that has found an enduring place in America.
The first motorcycles are almost to humble in style. No one could have predicted or even dreamed what these machines, these pieces of art, would become today. This exhibit, curated by the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, explores a century of developers, inventors, and dreamers that pushed the envelope on what two wheels can do. This is a century of the American motorcycle.
