Sturgis Motorcycle Museum adds all-wooden motorcycle

Posted: Updated:

An all-wooden motorcycle is being added to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

It took wood artist Mike Sohn of Hannibal, Missouri a year and a half to build and Sohn says there are at least nine different types of wood in the creation. The wooden motorcycle is modeled after a 1909 Harley-Davidson Twin.

"I'm completely amazed by the detail of this motorcycle – everything, down to the springs on the seat is a true work of art," said Christine Paige Diers, Executive Director of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

The Museum says its mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of motorcycling. Established in 2001, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is home to a variety of motorcycles featuring bikes dating back to 1907.
