AACA Museum Features “Motorbikes for the Masses”

While the AACA (The Antique Automobile Club of America) is perhaps not the first association that comes to mind when you think about mopeds and scooters. Yet this month, the AACA museum in Hershey, PA has put together a special exhibit just for small two-wheelers. Called “Motorbikes for the Masses”, this new exhibit turns an eye toward those small bikes that have moved people around for nearly a century.

Inexpensive, reliable, easy to maneuver and park transportation for a crowded urban area. This is where motorbikes, scooters, and mopeds really shine compared to ‘traditional’ motorcycles. The AACA Museum honors these often under-appreciated and sometimes ridiculed machines with its new exhibit, “Motorbikes for the Masses”.

The full exhibit list includes:

1948 Whizzer Pacemaker
1955 Rixe moped
1956 Cushman model 62 scooter
1956 Miele Deluxe moped
1957 Lambretta Lambro
