Winamac, Indiana

World of Motorcycles Museum

A large collection of motorbikes with some impressive gems. 

Just behind an Harley Davidson dealership in Winamac, Indiana a pleasant surprise is waiting: the World of Motorcycles museum. It is a little out of the way but most definitely worth the trip.

The whole collection is rather large and consists of at least 100 motorcycles and paraphernalia, plus several classic cars. Many of the motorcycles are unrestored and have the original paint. One or two even have an oil pan standing under the engine to collect the drips. Other gems include an experimental Indian called “Black Phantom” and the owner’s first motorcycle that was driven by a Maytag washing machine engine! If you’re lucky you’ll get a tour from the man himself, who started the dealership in 1962.
