150 years after creating the legendary motorcycle that is the Harley-Davidson, a museum was finally opened to honour the classic machine – and it was highly anticipated.
Located on a 20-acre peninsula and surrounded by canals, the £75 million complex was designed by Willie G. Davidson, the grandson of a Harley founder.
Deliberately designed to look like a factory, the museum is host to a multitude of classic Harley bikes and is worth a visit for any Hog fan.
With over 450 bikes in the collection, around 140 are on display at each time- regularly rotated to keep things interesting.
1903 – World’s Oldest Harley
Built in Milwaukee in 1903, the oldest Hog in the world is suitably encased in glass at the Harley-Davidson museum. With the serial number 001 stamped on many of the parts, this truly is a huge part of history.
