Motorcyclepedia Museum

While I was out of town over the holidays visiting family, I took some time to head over to Newburgh NY and check out the relatively new Motorcylepedia museum that opened up there. I gotta admit, this place is kind of amazing.

There is currently a Vintage Japanese bike exhibit that should be up through next summer that is pretty good. They also have a room full of Indian motorcycles (one from every year they made them from 1901-the ’50’s) as well as some badass choppers and tons of pre-WWII makes etc. that I had never heard of. I could have easily spent a full day there just trying to take it all in.

My camera battery shit out on me not long after I got there so I didn’t get anywhere near as many pics as I would have liked though.


If you find yourself out near Newburgh sometime. Do yourself a favor and stop in and check this place out. Or better yet, spring camping trip anyone?

    I’m pretty sure the Billy Joel museum is on Long Island. This place is about an hour or so north of NYC.

Someone once told me when looking to buy a cycle… you want to pay about $1 per cc. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is accurate anymore since vintage cycles have gained popularity… I have no need for a 3rd cycle, but this popped up for about $.65 per cc, with a title, under 10K miles, […]
