Featured In the October 2021 issue of Roadracing World:    

        Spoiler Alert: Not everything you see in some museums is real. That lunar orbiter you last saw? It may have been a trainer. Those relics from an Egyptian tomb? They might have been replicas. That tyrannosaurus rex skeleton? It’s likely only a small fraction of the bones on display were dug out of the ground.

        The motorcycles on display at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio, however, are real. They are the motorcycles that were used to set the records, to win the races, to capture the titles, to do the stunts. And they all are accompanied by the documents, the photographs, and the memorabilia that tell the story. That story is the heritage of motorcycling in America…

In 1990, the Motorcycle Heritage Museum opened near the AMA headquarters, which at that time were in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. In 1999, AMA moved to a new, 60,000-square-foot headquarters building alongside I-70 on the east side of Columbus. The museum moved with it, taking up residence in an adjacent 26,000-square-foot building and taking on a new name, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. Take a look inside one of the most important motorcycle museums in North Americain the latest issue of Roadracing World!
