Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum - North Carolina


I had the pleasure of visiting the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley North Carolina this past weekend.  What a place!!  I have traveled to a lot of motorcycle destinations, shows and museums over the years, but never have I witnessed anything like this.  Dale Walksler and his crew have done an incredible job to showcase over 350 American made motorcycles dating back to the turn of the century. Currently the museum has exhibits such as the Chopper Graveyard, The Hill Climb, Americas Racers, and the "Swim Shop" which is a beautiful recreation of a mid century Harley shop. JD's Flat Heads, Knuckleheads, Panheads, Shovelheads, Sportsters, Cut Downs, Choppers Racers, man this place has it all!  Any true motorcycle nut could spend multiple days walking this motorcycle museum and not feel like he was able to take it all in.  I only had a few hours, so I snapped some pics and can't wait to return soon!  Enjoy!

If you're in or around Western North Carolina be sure to make a point to visit the museum.
