The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame is now host to an all wooden motorcycle.
This motorcycle was built by wood artist Mike Sohn of Hannibal, Missouri. Sohn is used to building small scale pieces, but his retirement has left him building bigger projects.
This bike takes after the 1909 Harley-Davidson Twin. It took a year and a half to complete and there is, estimated, nine different types of wood in the piece.
"We are so excited to have this piece of art in our museum," said Christine Paige Diers,
Executive Director of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. "I'm completely
amazed by the detail of this motorcycle – everything, down to the springs on the seat is a true
work of art. I'm always excited to add new items to the museum's collection, and am thrilled
that Mike thought the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum would be the right home for this piece for the
next couple of years."
Sohn carves many different types of pieces. Normally whatever his interests are at the time.
At the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame you can also see a huge selection of American and metric bikes that are on loan from private individuals, along with a wide variety of exhibits, photographs, memorabilia and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally history.
