If you know me, personally, I am a huge fan of history, especially Northern European & American Civil & World Wars. However, I am also a huge fan of the Harley-Davidson legacy. Myself like many others, we knew of the families growing up, bought bikes, and lived the dream, but for me it really wasn’t until I watched the movie “Harley & the Davidson’s” that I really understood all that transpired from those early days (1903) until today.

The Dan Auerbach Collection: Vintage Harley-Davidsons from 1937-1950

Lane Motor Museum Hosts The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach’s
 Vintage Harley-Davidson Collection
Nashville, TN (May 10, 2018) — Lane Motor Museum is excited to announce that it has opened its newest public exhibit displaying The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach’s Vintage Harley-Davidson collection, starting today.rider

 

While known as a talented musician with a passionate work ethic, Dan’s passion for vintage motorcycle’s is less well known. Dan Auerbach’s collection consists of those Harley-Davidsons that have not been fully restored, yet retain much of the character of the prior owners, including the modifications that reflect their personalities. Ten of these motorcycles will be on display in the exhibit The Dan Auerbach Collection: Vintage Harley-Davidsons from 1937-1950, opening Thursday, May 10, 2018 at Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, TN.

 

“We are honored and thrilled to host Dan’s vintage Harley collection” said Jeff Lane, Lane Motor Museum Director. “This is the first time that Dan’s collection is being shown to the public and he has such unique pieces so full of character that casual observers and collectors alike will enjoy it.”

 

From the revolutionary 1937 EL “Knucklehead”, Dan’s first Harley, to his favorite, a 1940 EL nicknamed “Red Devil”, these bikes fuse his appreciation for folk art with the sound and ride that only a vintage Harley can deliver. As the son of an antique dealer, Auerbach caught the bug early for a vintage aesthetic that has carried into his adult life. Filled with patina and personality, each of the bikes in this collection reflect his love and appreciation for a time long past. All of the bikes are in working order and are ridden often by Auerbach.

 

The Dan Auerbach Collection: Vintage Harley-Davidsons from 1937-1950 will be on display starting May 10, 2018 at the Lane Motor Museum, in Nashville, TN.
