Early Years of Motocross Museum

Vintage MX of the 50s 60s and 70s

The museum's owner writes:
    The Early Years of MX Museum has been open since early 2006 for special events. Of special interest is a collection of 11 Husqvarna motorcycles which includes the 500cc Baja Invader that won the 1969 Baja 1000. Other interesting motorcycles include a 1968 Suzuki TM250 (1 of 65) that was the first Japanese production MX machine, a Bultaco Rickman Metisse (1 of 24), and a 1972 XR750 similar to the one White raced on Grand National dirt tracks. The museum has many posters from the earliest years of MX in America and many of Edison Dye's (the man who brought MX to America) original photos and documents.

The site includes many articles on the early years of motocross, along with a good collection of videos and many unusual features.
