The Owen Vintage Motorcycle Collection

The Owen Collection

A Collection of competition motorcycles from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

The Owen Collection is a private museum dedicated to the preservation of motorcycles from the 1950's, 60's and 70's. The museum was founded by Kelly Owen, a life-long motorcycle rider and racer. As a restoration enthusiast, Kelly had a hand in bringing the machines in the museum to concours condition.

All of the bikes in The Owen Collection are in perfect running condition. Mechanical corrections are performed during the restoration process. Several of the bikes are new out of the crate and have never been started.

The owner of the collection has contributed a good many images to the site, as listed here.
