Solvang MC Museum

These pictures were taken in a Motorcycle Museum located in Solvang.  The museum is only a few years old.  The collection is extremely impressive.

This is number 100 of only 100 Norton Rotary motorcycles built. 

It was manufactured in 1988 and is the very last Norton motorcycle ever built!

This is also a Rotary engine motorcycle manufactured by Suzuki, in 1977.
