Owls Head Transportation Museum

In keeping with a longstanding Owls Head Labor Day Weekend tradition, antique and vintage motorcycles take center stage at the Owls Head Transportation Museum’s annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival and Antique Aeroplane Show on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4. Owners of pre-1997 motorcycles are encouraged to exhibit and will be admitted free of charge. For the third year running, a special, designated parking area for modern motorcycles will also be set up in the main parking area. The Vintage Motorcycle Meet attracts antique, custom and racing bikes from all over northern New England.

In addition to assorted vintage motorcycles of all kinds, an array of family activities will include demonstrations, dirt track racers, free Model T rides and (weather permitting) antique aeroplane demonstrations. Young children are encouraged to practice their driving skills in the Kids Corral area, which features pedal cars and pedal planes. Remember, we fly early, so try to get to the Museum in the morning to see our planes in action!

The Museum will showcase its collection of early motorcycles, which includes a 1919 ABC Sopwith, 1868 Roper Steam Velocipede, 1901 Steffey Motorbike, 1922 Royal Enfield, 1930 Henderson Streamline Motorcycle, 1931 Indian Four, 1932 Harley Davidson V Motorcycle, 1938 Indian Scout and 1946 Whizzer Motorbike. A selection of automobiles from the ground vehicle collection will also be demonstrated throughout the weekend.

Event admission is $18 for adults. Children under 18, as well as retired and active duty Military, are admitted free. Doors open at 9:00 am. For more information about the event call the Museum at 594-4418 or visit our website at owlshead.org. The Museum is located at 117 Museum Street, in Owls Head, Maine, just two miles south of Rockland on Rte. 73.
