Motorcycling is a passion that exerts an intoxicating grip on any soul it touches. But you need not twist a throttle or feel the road below to experience the passion or feel the raw escape. Just walk through the expansive portal of The Haas Moto Museum, and you will instantly feel its grip.
The sheer expanse of The Haas Collection, with over 170 cycles spanning 12 decades, housed in the Museum and the adjacent Dragon Gallery, is a joyous revival of a cultural phenomenon that continues to evolve to this day. From the time when a crude gas tank was first strapped onto a bicycle frame to the creation of radical new designs that push the outer limits of the imagination, The Haas Collection has no equal anywhere, with its seemingly endless array of truly unique cycles embedded in two venues of unparalleled beauty.
Not only does the Collection immerse you in the evolution of cycles from 1901 to the present day, it unveils an unparalleled collection of 27 one-of-a-kind cycles—a dazzling testament to the Renaissance notion of inventors creating art for the sake of art, with no blueprint or predecessor to guide their hands.
Step into a world where the fantasy of limitless speed blends with the reality of mechanized motion, where the cycles are elevated on custom platforms and surrounded by one-off metallic sculptures that enliven the total experience.
And when you experience this gem of a Collection, the word connectivity will no longer mean what it did when you entered. It will not refer to emails or texts—it will instead bring to mind generations of escape artists connected only to the ribbon of road that unraveled beneath their feet and the wind and the scenery that were their constant companions.
