Solvang Motorcycle Museum

I am not sure what forum would be best for this to live, so I'm posting here. I visited the Solvang Motorcycle Museum up in Solvang, California, and thought I would share some photos I took. Only a selection of total collection is on display at any time. I really enjoyed looking at all of the motorcycles and recommend it if you are ever in the area (about an hour northwest of Santa Barbara). My family and I drove up on Sunday morning (to get through Los Angeles without traffic) and came back today. They enjoyed shopping in the unique Danish village and the area around there is beautiful.


I'll start off with some images of the three MV's on display:

The Britten is an amazing bike but the story of John Britten is fascinating! The bike in the pic was displayed at the Quail in 2017. My SB8R was placed right next to it. The real bonus was to hear it run.

Thanks for posting. Loved seeing the HRD, Vincent and Nortons! You need to make a trip to Barber Museum in AL. They have a Britten. And 1200+ other bikes
