Whether young or old, a minibike placed the freedom and luxury of personal motorized transport into the hands of the rider. Used for recreation, sport, and transportation, the minibike put an indelible smile on the faces of generations of postwar Americans.
The AACA Museum takes guests on a walk through time that shows how minibikes emerged in the 1940s and 1950s, flourished in the 1960s and 1970s, and remain motorized fun for the youthful-minded of all ages!
Among the bikes on display are examples from many manufacturers, both domestic and foreign. Some are recognizable household names such as Coleman, Honda, Arctic Cat (yes, the snowmobile company), as well as other marketed by former retail giants like Montgomery Ward.
The exhibit features everything from early, seminal minibikes, like the American-made "Lil" Indian to the foldable Valmobile scooter from Japan. They are on display in all sizes, colors with conditions ranging from "ridden hard and put away wet" to pristinely restored. There are even a few that are original, right down to the tires!
Explore more than two dozen examples of these miniature motorbikes during the Minibike Mania exhibit. If you had a minibike or always wanted one, you'll surely enjoy this one-of-a-kind display!
