The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, located near Columbus, Ohio, and the National Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, in Anamosa, Iowa, have completed plans to consolidate their respective halls-of-fame, inductees and procedures under the banner of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum.
As part of the agreement, the Iowa museum will change its name to the National Motorcycle Museum, and all members of that museum's hall of fame will be added to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Ohio. The two museums will continue their own independent operations and management, and continue to cooperate sharing motorcycles, memorabilia, art, and archived and exhibit material.
"We believe it's a win-win for the entire motorcycling community, and we're very enthusiastic about our potential for the future," said John Parham, president of the National Motorcycle Museum's board of directors. As part of the unification agreement, Parham will join the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum's board of directors, and become a member of the board's Hall of Fame Committee.
