The Century of the American Motorcycle
On view through March 2022
Western Reserve Historical Society/Cleveland History Center
Cleveland, Ohio

“The Century of the American Motorcycle” is an extensive look into the technical and esthetic development of American motorcycles, in particular, from the 1905 Indian Single to the 1907 Merkel Light, through the Twentieth Century and right up to the 2018 Motus MST.

The exhibition opens with a comprehensive review of American motorcycle evolution produced by The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama.

This is only the second time the collection of over 30 American-made motorcycles has been on exhibit outside of the Barber Museum and is made possible by sponsorship from Progressive Insurance and Dan T. Moore.

The Cleveland History Center is headquarters for Western Reserve Historical Society and home of the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum.
