The Harley-Davidson Museum is preparing to host its annual birthday celebration as the Wild Ones: Vintage Motorcycle Rally takes over the campus on July 8. Though Saturday is the main celebration, the museum will be holding events throughout the weekend.

Thursday, July 6
Bike Night, 5 – 9 p.m.
Thursday’s Bike Night serves as the kick-start for the Wild Ones fun. The car club Wisco Maniacs will show off their classic rides, and the Ives Brothers will ride the Wall of Death.

Saturday, July 8
There will be a vintage 1940s-style motorcycle rally at the museum. The 15th annual Knucklehead Company Reunion hosts an antique motorcycle ride-in show and the AMCA Badger Heritage Chapter hosts authentic motorcycle field games like the slow race and plank ride. The Ives Brothers will perform Wall of Death stunt shows, and there will be an after-party concert with live music and special $10 after-hours admission into the museum’s summer exhibit, “The Race of Gentlemen.”
