Located about an hour away from Old Cars Weekly headquarters, Steve "Doc" Hopkins free museum is filled with mighty muscle cars. Hopkins is the owner of Doc’s Harley-Davidson in Bonduel, Wis., but he is also a record-holding drag racer and his go-fast interests turned him onto ‘60s muscle machines. Doc’s Harley dealership has all the basics: showroom, accessory and apparel store and motorcycle repair shop. But it also has some oddities like a zoo, the muscle museum, a giant chopper-shaped rib fryer and a pirate ship. Also displayed in the museum are about a dozen motorcycles and such artifacts as a 1937-1939 Ford V8-60 flathead V-8 engine. Doc also has a rare 1920's John Deere Model E stationary engine and a Harley-Davidson stationary engine that was made during the Great Depression, when motorcycle sales were lagging. Doc’s Harley-Davidson, Inc., can be contacted at West 2709 State Highway 29, Bonduel, WI 54107. It is open Mon. and Thurs. 9-5; Tues. and Weds. 9-6; Fri. 9-8; Sat. 9-4 and Sun. 10-3. Call at 715-758-9080 or email docshd@mail.tds.net. The website is www.docshd.com
