Gerald and Ted Doering, a father and son team who have amassed a personal collection totalling over three hundred motorcycles, will be opening a new motorcycle museum in Newburgh, New York on April 16, 2011.
Simply called Motorcyclepedia, the 85,000 sq. ft. museum will display models that date back to 1897. Their collection includes the first Indian built in 1901 and a police escort motorcycle that was part of President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade the day he was assassinated. Also part of the museum, which is located approximately 100 km north of Manhattan, are memorabilia and exhibits from the Antique Motorcycle Foundation.
After its grand opening, the museum will be open three days a week (Thursday to Saturday) from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; more information can be found at the museum’s website (www.motorcyclepediamuseums.com) or you can call them at 1-845-569-9065.
