Get your motor running - Harley Davidson brand to be celebrated in major Manchester exhibition, April - September 2011

Posted: 17th March 2011

If the feel of leather on skin and the deep-throated roar of a decent motorbike revs your engine, you may well have to consider heading to Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry from April onwards - there are some Harleys coming to town!

A major motorcycle exhibition entitled Customising, Culture and Harley-Davidson will begin a four-month residency at the city's stunning MOSI venue on 15th April, continuing on till 11th September. The event is all about the most famous US motorcycle-brand in existence and features over thirty classic and customised bikes from the past century, including a police highway patrol edition from the '30s and also one of the earliest Harleys still in existence.

The exhibition is family-friendly with ridiculously cheap tickets available. Standard admission is £8, HOG (Harley Owners Group) members get in for £6.50 and 'little rebels' (that's children to you) are admitted for just £2!

As well as the display of bikes, there are other interactive elements including owner's customized models and merchandise. Brrrrmm!
