Motorcyclepedia is a comprehensive museum of the motorcycle. Started as a private collection by father and son Jerry and Ted Doering, Motorcyclepedia now showcases motorcycles of all makes and nationalities, from the most out-of-the-box Hondas to early steam-powered bikes, to German World War II half-tracks.

The earliest motorcycle in the collection dates to 1867. Many of the displays are one-of-a-kind designs. Motorcyclepedia's collection of Indian-brand motorcycles is the most complete in the world.

The museum houses custom Harleys, movie props like Peter Fonda's bike from Easy Rider, and a police motorcycle that served in JFK's motorcade the day he was assassinated.
