On my way back from the Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE LT+ launch, I was riding on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona when a beat up BSA caught my attention. It was on display in front of something called Motoporium, and a sign announced that there were vintage cars and vintage motorcycles inside. Considering that nearly every bike I had seen on Route 66 to that point was either a Harley-Davidson or an Indian, I was expecting to just see a couple of classic cruisers. I was wrong.
Presented mostly without comment, here are most of the machines inside the Motoporium. The first thing I saw when I walked in was this Honda Dream. That’s when I realized that there might actually be some cool stuff in here!

I learned something when I was researching this photo: the Yamaha Virago 250 was originally called the Route 66 when it was first released in the US between 1988-1990!
The website looks like it hasn’t been updated in a while, but don’t let that fool you. The next time you’re on Route 66, you should stop by!
