Motorcycle Early Days Exhibit At Sturgis Motorcycle Museum

A new exhibit called “The Early Days” focusing on the earliest motorcycles – from what is commonly recognized as the first motorcycle through those machines produced in 1915 -. just opened at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum.

“The Early Days Exhibit is designed to show our visitors what those early machines were like, and to tell the story of how it all started,” said Christine Paige Diers, Executive Director of the museum.

“In those very early days, there were many different companies that manufactured and sold motorcycles, and this exhibit just gives a taste of what that competition must have been like.”  The Early Days exhibit also tells the much more recent story of the Motorcycle Cannonball, these modern day adventurers who last year rode the same early machines from coast to coast. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is located at the corner of Main Street and Junction Avenue in Sturgis, South Dakota.  The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.  Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for anyone 65 and older and children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

    Great! An interest in “The Early Days” when scooters were much simpler.
    Could be people’s tastes in Motorcycles is turning back to the basics?
    Basics like the mechanics of a “motor driven cycles.”
    Basics like many small shops putting out unique designed and had built motorcycles.

    Given $5 a gallon gas, this could be the beginning of a new era for motorcycling….. 🙂
