The exhibit will be open until May 19, 2013 and is a common endeavor with help from the Lake Erie Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA).

More than 30 motorcycles will be on display until mid-May, including a 1911 Flanders and a 1917 Dayton, a number of significant American, European, and Japanese bobbers, the award winning 1940 Indian Scout bobber, and several vintage and modern custom bikes, Evil Knievel's own 1988 Knievel Cycle Chopper among them, as well.

"The purpose of the Annual Antique Motorcycle Exhibit is to educate audiences about motorcycle history, and to promote the preservation, restoration and collection of antique motorcycles", said Mary Ann Porinchak, the museum's Executive Director.

"The exhibit is also designed to raise awareness of the significance of the motorcycle to transportation history and to cultivate an interest and appreciation for the conservation of transportation related history among motorcycle enthusiasts," added Ms. Porinchak, according to Packard Museum sources.
