This diverse collection of twenty-eight Motorcycles, Cushman and Motor Bikes primarily spans the 1930’s through the early 1970’s. Favorite brands include Triumph, Indian, BSA, Honda, BMW and some more rare makers such as Ariel, Mustang, Marmon and AJS. One of the more unique vehicles in this collection is a 1944 Military Airborne Cushman Model ’53. Dennis Carpenter, a renowned Ford restoration parts supplier, has graciously loaned the AACA Museum a portion of his personal collection for display through May of 2011.
