American Motorcycle Museum

The American Motorcycle Museum in Raalte is a museum about American motorcycles, especially the classic ones. The collection contains about 10 motorcycles from the Second World War. Among these are several very special and rare ones, like an Indian, a Harley Davidson XA (an American replica of the German motorcycle R75) and a WLA in winter camouflage.

The WW2-motorcyles are just a small part of the total collection of the museum, but some of these are so rare that other museums specialized in WW2 donít have them.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
