Fall Bike Night
It's the season of giving thanks, and at the Harley-Davidson Museum®, we're grateful for Milwaukee Iron, Bike Nights and you. Come down to MOTOR as our Bike Night series moves indoors and say hi to old friends or make new ones. Grey:Mercy, playing all your favorite covers – along with a few original compositions – provides the soundtrack for this monthly installment. MOTOR will be turning out food and drink specials, including $2 Miller Lite with your MOTOR Bike Night koozie. And it wouldn't be Bike Night without raffles for unique Harley-Davidson merchandise.
The night's festivities will also include samples from Third Space Brewery, a new Menomonee Valley neighbor and one of the many breweries that will be on hand at the 5th Annual Black Friday Beerfest, taking place Nov. 25.
5th Annual Black Friday BeerfestNov. 25, 4 – 7 p.m. (V.I.P. entry at 3 p.m.)
Forget the mall. The best way to spend Black Friday is with great friends and your 30 of your favorite craft breweries at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Milwaukee-Eight™ Engine DisplayMore than a century of refinement has produced a procession of iconic 45-degree Harley-Davidson V-Twins. Renowned for their unique look, sound, and for the feel they create as the rider goes down the road, these engines are the heart and soul of our motorcycles. A major redesign of the large-displacement Big Twin engines that power Harley-Davidson cruiser and touring bikes is a rare occurrence. Past designs—the “Knucklehead,” “Panhead,” “Shovelhead”— have taken on legendary status. The next chapter in this story, the Milwaukee-Eight™, was introduced for the 2017 model year. While retaining the defining features of the classic Harley V-Twin, it introduces substantial improvements for the 21st-century rider. Now on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum, the first ever Milwaukee-Eight to roll of the assembly line has come home.
Custom Kings Contest WinnerOn display in the Museum lobby
Harley-Davidson's Custom Kings contest challenged U.S. dealerships to turn a stock Sportster® motorcycle into a work of art. Over a period of two months, more than 90 teams designed and built their masterpieces. The top 64 creations were revealed to the public online, and fans voted for their favorites in a bracket-style tournament to determine the winner.
This year's Custom King is “General Mayhem,” from Hal's Harley-Davidson of New Berlin, Wisconsin. Hal's had a unique partner in its effort: the local New Berlin High School BUILD Team, part of an organization dedicated to pairing students with bike-building mentors to teach valuable life and interpersonal skills.
