During the off season, the museum staff stays busy adding to and improving each of the exhibits at the Wheels Through Time. Dale, Matt and crew also spend several hours a day rebuilding and restoring motorcycles that will be going on display during the 2020 Season. We have some great new rare bikes for you to check out this year as well as new products in our gift shop. Come on out and help us kick off the 2020 season and see if you can spot the new additions to the museum!

American Motor Drome Company: Wall of Death Thrillshow
The Wall of Death is a vintage live action thrill show featuring a motor drome, a silo-shaped wooden cylinder 30 feet in diameter. Inside the drome motorcycle daredevils travel along the vertical wall performing trick, fancy, and acrobatic riding.
Motor dromes started on the carnivals and fairs– the midways of America– when entertainment was live and in person. Today American Motor Drome Company strives to keep this bit of history alive by traveling the United States, performing the show as it would have been 100 years ago.
The show features antique Indian and Harley-Davidson motorcycles along with hand built 4-wheeled racing machines.
Nothing compares to seeing the show in person at the top of the 14 foot board wall, where you can smell the rubber burn and feel the wind as the motorcycles race just inches from you!

RACE WEEK at "The Museum That Runs"
Like the old saying goes,”The first motorcycle race began when the second motorcycle was built.”
For over 110 years, manufactures have expended countless resources to cross the finish line first, paving the way for future development and industry progress. Due to limited production runs and short life spans, they are some of the most desirable and sought after machines for collectors and enthusiasts.
Wheels Through Time houses close to 150 of America’s rarest racing machines, each with a special story to tell. Join us RACE WEEK to learn about the incredible history behind these bikes, and hear them roar to life with the same power that lead them around the track, up the hill, and down the drag strip.

Dale's 2020 Wheels Through Time Raffle
Our 2020 Wheels Through Time Raffle Bike is this beautiful 1939 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead hand-built by the team in the Wheels Through Time restoration shop. This year’s masterpiece is powered by an all original 1939 61c.i. OHV Knucklehead engine mated to a genuine H-D 4-speed transmission, making it one of smoothest running motorcycles ever built by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. Finished in classic black with ivory panels, the bike has been accurately restored to showroom condition and is ready for the road. Pre-war Harley-Davidsons are among the most desirable motorcycles in the world and have become nearly unobtainable in today’s collector market. Now is your chance to take home an iconic piece of American motorcycle history! We collaborated with many of the industry’s top vendors and artists for the build of our 2020 raffle bike, and next November she’ll be given away to one lucky winner.
The raffle takes place in front of a live audience on Saturday, Nov 14th, 2020 at the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC. Second prize is $10k, and 3rd prize is $5k — you do not have to be present to win.
