National Motorcycle Museum Looking for ‘Motorcycles At Work’

ANAMOSA, Iowa - The National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa, often gets the question, “Can I loan my motorcycle or other collectibles for display at the Museum?”

If that has been your question, this may be your moment. The Museum invites anyone with motorcycles or uniforms, photos, posters, even stories that are related to motorcycles at work to consider being part of a new exhibition. Motorcycles At Work will chronicle a century of courier service, police, military action and more in which motorcycles have played an important role.

The exhibit will open June 4, 2011 when the entire Museum is officially dedicated. Plans are to include bikes from the famed 1940’s Harley-Davidson WLA all the way up to the modern M1030 Kawasaki Diesel, a 2010 military version of the venerable KLR.
