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?

Thanks

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!
