The Motorcycle Hall of fame preserves the heritage of motorcycling and educates the public in respect to the great traditions of American motorcycling at this museum. This Columbus Ohio museum has maintained archives of photos, publications, and other documents and also created a Hall of Fame to those who have contributed to this heritage.
The American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation was created in 1982. In 1990 the Motorcycle Heritage Museum was opened and featured motorcycling history exhibits. In 1999 the facility was moved and became the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum.
The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame commemorates inductees which includes heroes of the track, road, trails and hall of government who have elevated the sport to new heights.
Some of the equipment that represent their accomplishments include a Wayne Rainey Superbike; Gary Nixon’s Formula 750 racebike; one-of-a-kind Craig Vetter bikes, Doug Henry’s YZM400, which is the bike that started the four-stroke motocross revolution; Denis Manning’s 23-foot-long Tenacious II streamliner, and many more.
