    Here's a few pics from the museum in Chehalis, Washington.
    My buddy took me there for my Birthday last week, and a great time was had by all two of us!

    Very cool.
    I have always liked those Monarch twins (Marmon or Jack-Heinz ?).

    I'm going to Chehalis this weekend for a vintage motorcycle event, do you have the address or phone # for this museum?

  4. I think this is the guy that had an original California and sold it to that museum in SoCal that restored it !!! Did he pass away reciently?

    Yup, this is the one. I don't know if he passed away, I think he's still around...?
    Didja see the Thomas Auto-Bi?!? I got all kinds of giddy and excited when I saw it! That's the fellow that had his men work until 9:00 at night to forge new forks for George's California! He (Thomas) also went on to be the first Automobile-ist to circumnavigate the globe- his car is on display at Harrah's museum in Reno, Nevada; which dad and I saw while doing the Wyman Centennial trip...
    Neat stuff!

    No problemo,

    btw, if you click on the link, there is a place to make comments....sooooo,
    if the PCW's (a hotbed of MB's) mentioned WHERE you read the article, it might bring some more regular riders AND heritage buffs.

    I was just in Centrailia a few weeks ago. I wished I'd known about that Museum, I could have ridden my Rudge there.
