The National Packard Museum in Warren, Ohio will open up its 5th annual motorycle show on January 8, 2005, and will run until April 16. This year's show is entitled, "Motorcycle Milestones of the 20th Century".

The show will explore motorcycle history; featuring 10 decades of motorcycle manufacturing from the single cylinder, flat belt drive to the custom models of today. Visitors will see the oldest known Harley in existence and motorcycle innovations that paved the way for the future of the motorcycle industry.

The exhibit will include a replica of the 1913 Excelsior, the first motorcycle to break the 100-mile-per-hour speed limit, and a speedy 1917 Indian motorcycle. Also on display is a 1936 Harley-Davidson, which was the first motorcycle to feature an overhead valve instead of a side valve.

Also featured is a 1937 Brough-Superior, a company known as the "Rolls Royce of motorcycles". Japanese motorcycles in the show include a 1975 Honda Goldwing. Other bikes include choppers and crotch rockets.
