The motorcycles in the museum are from the private collection of Virgil Elings. He has been collecting motorcycles for 2 decades. The collection is quite broad with something for everyone, ranging from a 1910 FN to the present, and across all makes. The emphasis is tilted toward racing motorcycles since Virgil and his son Jeff were involved in vintage motorcycle racing, both motocross and road racing.
The Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum is an easy day ride out of Los Angeles, through the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.
The museum is located in the former Solvang Designer Outlet Center now owned by Dr. Elings. You can find us in the former Brooks Brothers store (maple floor and all).
The museum rotates some of the bikes each month so that the bikes on display are constantly changing and expanding.
