Taber exhibits vintage motorcycles
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will be featuring approximately twenty-five vintage motorcycles from a private collection as its summer exhibit, Friday, June 5, through Aug. 2.
The exhibit, entitled “Harley-Davidson vs. Indian Wars,” will include a rare Cleveland bike, circa 1920, as well as the 1941 Indian, nicknamed the “Duesenberg of Motorcycles.” A number of Harley-Davidsons, Triumphs and Indians dating from 1937 to 2018 will be featured. In addition, there will be kidney belts, H-D hats, artwork, posters and photographs to accompany the exhibit.
In preparation for the exhibit, the bikes have been photographed by Williamsport photographer Richard Karp with the assistance of David Burke. The photographs will appear in a catalogue produced for the exhibit, as well as an eighteen month calendar for July 2020 to December 2021. A limited edition poster, designed by Dewey Oakes, Susquehanna Gallery and Frame Shoppe, Jersey Shore, will also be available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the museum.
The exhibit is supported by a grant awarded by the Lycoming County Visitors Bureau Travel and Tourism grant. At present, the museum is closed due to the pandemic measures ordered by Gov. Wolf.
