MUSEUM NEWS AND DISPLAYS
Wheels by Harley-Davidson
Visitors to the Museum this holiday season are in for a never-before-seen treat: a 1960 Model BT Super-10 in its first-ever display – with Santa in the saddle. The throwback single-cylinder two-cycle bike was marketed to the “young and young at heart.” This 1960 model, part of the Harley-Davidson Archives collection, has only three miles on its odometer.
Milwaukee-Eight™ Engine Display
More than a century of refinement has produced a procession of iconic 45-degree Harley-Davidson V-Twins. Renowned for their unique look, sound, and for the feel they create as the rider goes down the road, these engines are the heart and soul of our motorcycles. A major redesign of the large-displacement Big Twin engines that power Harley-Davidson cruiser and touring bikes is a rare occurrence. Past designs—the Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead— have taken on legendary status. The next chapter in this story, the Milwaukee-Eight, was introduced for the 2017 model year. While retaining the defining features of the classic Harley V-Twin, it introduces substantial improvements for the 21st-century rider. Now on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum, the first ever Milwaukee-Eight to roll of the assembly line has come home.
$10 Tuesdays are back!
Don’t forget: Museum admission on Tuesdays from October through April is just $10, no reservation required.
As the holidays approach, The Shop at the Harley-Davidson Museum has new items arriving daily to make this year a happy Harley-Davidson holiday. From stocking stuffers to clothing and accessories, The Shop is your one-stop shop for the Harley lover in your life. Living the Legend Rivets give enthusiasts the chance to proudly display a personalized message at the Museum to inspire generations of future riders.

MOTOR Bar & Restaurant
The team at MOTOR Bar & Restaurant has been cooking up some outstanding dishes for December. MOTOR’s monthly specials will get your mouth watering: Spinach Artichoke dip is a gooey combination of three cheeses, fresh spinach and artichokes served alongside tortilla chips and house-made crostini. Sticky Garlic Ginger Wings pack an Asian-influenced sauce with just a hint of heat. The Patty Melt melds a hand-packed patty, Swiss cheese, fried onions, lettuce, tomato and MOTOR’s house-made Russian dressing on marble rye for a hearty taste of Americana. And for a cup of good cheer, try the Grand Amaretto Express, a blend of Grand Marnier® and Amaretto.
