Now he has moved his motorcycles and accessories collection from his home storage and dealership to a new 3,600-square-foot space covering two floors of a separate building. The museum contains BMW models dating from 1925 to the present day, restored or not. In a few cases, motorcycles are still in their shipping crates. Plus Steib sidecars, cases of manuals, advertising art and even a child’s tricycle version of one classic model, are on display.

Some of the unusual pieces are a 1913 Indian (one of two non-BMW motorcycles featured), two 1940s BMW models used in World War II, a “kneeler” that set a land speed record of 132mph, and a 2001 special edition C1, designed to be ridden without needing a helmet.
