Vintage Indian motorcycle exhibit to open at Antique Automobile Club of America Museum

 

→ Indian motorcycle exhibit to open – Lebanon Daily News.

The exhibit will run through Oct. 24. The museum is located just off Route 39, one mile west of Hersheypark Drive in Hershey. Regular admission $10, seniors age 61 and older $9, juniors age 4-12 $7. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. More information here.

Editors Note: I went to see the exhibit on Sunday, March 30 and was very impressed not only with the vintage motorcyles but the entire museum as well. I photographed the entire Indian Nation exhibit and you can find the pics here.

This educational and entertaining exhibit presents the Indian motorcycle as both an aesthetic object (work of art) and as material culture (possessing meaning and a story). Indian Nation will also interpret the saga of Indian motorcycles through Indian’s history and responses to the Great Depression, World Wars I and II, and post-war American culture.

The stunning selection of rare and show-winning motorcycles on display will showcase early singles and twins, Scouts, Chiefs, and Fours. Some of the exhibit’s highlights include Harrisburg-area racer Bob Markey’s original 1940 Scout, a 1903 Indian—possibly the earliest original example of the marque, and immaculately restored machines of all eras. Included within the exhibit will be period dealer items and popular culture references.
