NEWBURGH, N.Y. - Motorcyclepedia, an 85,000 sq. ft. motorcycle museum, will have its grand opening on April 16 in Newburgh.

The museum will house a collection of 300 motorcycles, some dating back to 1897, as well as artifacts, memorabilia and exhibits from the Antique Motorcycle Foundation. Bikes on display include the first Indian built in 1901, and a police escort vehicle that was part of President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade the day he was assassinated.

The Times Herald-Record reports that owner Ted Doering and his father Gerald had collected these motorcycles for a combined 100 years.

Museum hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. The museum is at 250 Lake St.
