Dang, the non-profit motorcycle museum founded by the owners of J&P Cycles in 1989 says it’ll be closing its Anamosa, Iowa, doors in September. Sad, but maybe there’ll be happy endings for some as the museum auctions off display bikes that won’t be returned to their owners. Details to come…

In the meantime, Iowa’s a fun place to ride around if you’ve never been.

“We have struggled for several years to cover wages and utilities partly due to low visitation,” the museum said, in a statement.

The museum is planning to close on Sept. 5, 2023, according to the statement.

The organization said that it will return loaned motorcycles that were part of its collection to their owners, with a plan to liquidate the rest at auction at a later date. More information on the future auction will be distributed via the museum’s email list on its website.
