The Road Bikes
1963 BSA Super Rocket
The last of the pre-unit BSAs, the 643cc A10 was one of the nicest machines produced by the British industry. It was fast, with good acceleration, smooth brakes, a nice gearbox and minimal vibration. This motorcycle was restored by Jay Strait.
1973 Triumph Hurricane
Unveiled in November of 1972, the motorcycle was based on the discontinued BSA Rocket 3 and used the left over BSA triple engines after the company shut down. US designer Craig Vetter penned the limited edition bike to cash in on the 'chopper craze" caused by the movie, "Easy Rider". The Hurricane was dramatic but not efficient and fewer that 1200 were made.
1977 Triumph BonnevilleRegarded as the quintessential British twin, the Bonneville was introduced in 1959 and continued in various forms until 1989. This 1977 model, with the purple tank, was seen in the movie, "An Officer and a Gentleman".
1969 BSA 441 Victor

1996 Triumph Daytona Series III
With production limited to 150 units, this 113 bhp, 900cc sports bike has a Coventry engineered motor and "Indycar" front brakes.
1955 Vincent "D" Black Shadow
The last of the legendary Black Shadows, the 1955 D series saw Vincent close their doors leaving a legacy of high tech, state-of-the-art, fast and dramatic motorcycles. The Black Shadow, first introduced in 1949, survived through 1955 and along the way broke speed records on several continents. It won an extraordinary following, and many Vincents are still ridden on a daily basis. The Vincent was the first true 100 mph tourer.
1979 Honda CBX1000
An astounding motorcycle for it's time, the 6 cylinder, 1047cc, 105 bhp Honda CBX had 4 valves per cylinder, 6 carburetors and remarkable performance. This particular CBX was restored at Allen Museum Collection.
1979 Honda CB750FZ
The first of Honda's DOHC, 16 valve motorcycles, the CB750FZ signaled a new era of performance.
1982 Honda CB900FB
The third in the series of 900cc DOHC models, the FB featured several refinements including better suspension and re-designed composite wheels.
The model, as indeed the series, proved immensely popular due to its durability and reliability, and was one of the best selling large-capacity motorcycles of all time.
1983 Honda CB1100FD
A lightning fast sportbike, the 1100F was only produced for one year but, even by today's standards, is a high performance motorcycle.
1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary
Suzuki engineers designed the RE5 rotary-engined touring motorcycle in three years. The 1976 version has an NSU Wankel rotary, liquid cooled engine of 497 cc producing 62 horsepower.
