More than 1,200 supporters and motorcyclists attended the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum’s first Open House Saturday in central Ohio.
“Our first Open House was a smashing success,” AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Operations Manager Katy Wood said in a press release. “The crowd exceeded our expectations and created a vibrant and exciting scene here at the Hall of Fame. The most important thing, though, is that we exposed hundreds of new fans to the history of motorcycling, and each one will go back out into the community and share the amazing stories of our heritage.”
Those stories include the current exhibits at the museum. The main hall is occupied by “MotoStars: Celebrities + Motorcycles,” which showcases two-wheeled machines and memorabilia owned by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In addition, “Awesome-Ness” includes several of the incredible one-off custom motorcycle creations by designer extraordinaire Arlen Ness.
The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. More information can be found at MotorcycleMuseum.org.
