Matchlock, Thank you for posting these. Are these items on loan to the museum or are they on display all the time?

Robert,

As far as I know they belong to the museum and are on permanent display.

Michael, Thanks for the information. Looks like I have a road trip in my future. When I tell the wife that I'm going and taking the bike I might even get to go alone. I doubt that she could sit in the sidecar that fare.

Well, Robert,

It sure seems to be a long way from Kansas by bike!

Enjoy your trip,

Michael

You are absolutely correct, but that's half the fun. Back in the good old days (30 years ago) it would have been just something interesting to do on a long weekend. Unfortunately those days are long gone and this trip will now probably take me a week or more.
