Must-see exhibits and installations

Keith Brammer leather jacket (currently on display)

Perhaps no other musical genre is as closely related to the classic black leather jacket as punk rock. Keith Brammer of Milwaukee’s hardcore punk band Die Kreuzen gracefully lent his worn-out leather to the HD Museum. The jacket was purchased in New York City in the 1980s and was a companion throughout Brammer’s tour. Check out the Custom Culture Gallery to see this Milwalky music history.

Inspiration and Recovery: Injured veterans climb seven summits (currently on display)
In September 2009, during a tour in Afghanistan, specialist Benjamin Blakeheimer, a cavalry scout of the 2nd Stryker Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division of the US Army, was seriously injured. His rehabilitation was difficult because he endured many surgeries. At the same time, the Harley-Davidson Museum regularly sent care packages containing the HD Museum ™ flag to active military personnel. Blakeheimer began climbing during the recovery and carried the HD Museum flag to the summit of Denali, the highest point in North America, during the summer. Upon reaching that peak, Breckheimer became the first and only recipient of the Purple Heart to reach all seven summits, the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. He continues to climb, promotes resilience, and shares his inspiring stories to support the mental health of veterans and current military personnel.

Revolution® Max engine (currently on display)

The brand new Revolution® Max 1250cc engine powers a new generation of Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Take a look at the liquid-cooled 60-degree V-twin for the PanAmerica ™ Adventure Touring Model and Performance Cruiser Sportster® S Motorcycle. It is exhibited in the lobby of the museum.

Club & Competition (currently on display)

At the beginning of the 20th century, motorcycle culture was a homemade phenomenon. It was born out of the rider’s passion for evolving sports. Friendships that have evolved around horse riding and participation in competition events have led to the formation of motorcycle clubs that host destination rides, family picnics in motorcycle games, and other riding competitions.

The newly re-installed display cases in the Club & Competition Gallery primarily highlight the clothing of club members in the 1930s and 1940s. The clothing choices displayed include full dress uniforms, shirts, sweaters, jackets, caps, and pin or sign that you are a member of the American Motorcyclist Association, customized by the owner using the club’s name and logo. Includes patches. The HD Archives collection includes Motorclothes® apparel sold in the HD® product catalog, as well as non-HD production clothing proudly customized by the rider.

Harley Fox (currently on display)

Gail Anderson’s 1986 Softail® Custom Motorcycle “Harley Fox” was manufactured by partner Bob Burrows and won the Grand Prize at the first Ladies of Harley® (LOH) Ride-in Show at Daytona Beach Bike Week in 1987. I won the award. Anderson’s themed riding gear presented an impressive image that matched the increased awareness of female riders in the 1980s and exciting new options.

Alfonso Soto Mayor 1957 model FL (currently on display)

The Harley-Davidson Museum has recently announced that its collection has grown with the addition of the 1957 model FL, on which the famous Mexican stunt rider and racer Alfonso Soto Mayor Canales was riding.

Harley-Davidson’s history in Mexico dates back to at least 1913. In the 1920s, the brand was seen more often throughout Mexico City as the bike became popular with local traffic police who stunted on Harley-Davidson® bikes. After racing in the 1930s and 1960s, Sotomayor began his own stunt riding career by running the famous “Santa Muerte” or Jump of Death. Learn more about Sotomayor’s derring-do feat and Harley-Davidson’s early entry into Mexico with this new display in the Kustom Kulture area.

“Off-Road Harley-Davidson” (currently on display)

In the decades before the United States paved the highway, early riders needed to prepare for all kinds of terrain, including sand, clay and soil. It was a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle that wandered the makeshift road. Today it is called off-road or adventure touring. At that time, it was simply called horseback riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles have proved their toughness by climbing hillsides, over wooded hills, through the bed of stone-filled streams. “Off-Road Harley-Davidson” talks about the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who ride them, and the adventures they shared.

“Building the Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (currently on display)
The recently recovered architectural drawing cache contains plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. Pencil drawings and archived photographs show the pace of the company’s early growth whirlwind. The company’s Milwaukee plant experienced nearly constant expansion while building an international business, producing more than 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 and 27,000 motorcycles in 1920. This relatively short period of construction gave rise to Harley-Davidson’s proud home, even today, a century later.

“Building the Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formation and shows the chapter in the history of Milwaukee, where the city was known as the “Machine Shop of the World.”
