St. Francis Motorcycle Museum - St. Francis, Kansas
The St. Francis Motorcycle Museum opened in a new, purpose built 10,000 square foot building in downtown St. Francis, Kansas in 2016. The museum houses at least 115 motorcycles which came from several collections. Over a third of the collection is Harley-Davidson.
Many of the motorcycles exhibited are from the early years of motorcycle production and the centerpiece of the museum is a 1902 Orient motorcycle. The Orient was built by Metz Company in Waltham, Massachusetts, starting in 1898, and only one other 1902 is known in existence.
A visit to the museum may run anywhere from a half hour, to the larger part of a day, depending on the visitor's level of interest.
