Art Zimmerman

DON’T POPPIT !!!!!!!    ROTATE IT!!!!!!!

“Today there are very few individuals that are true pioneers in the field of internal combustion engine design. Merritt Zimmerman (my dad) was in the league of those pioneers. At a time when gas-guzzling behemoths of two wheeled and four-wheeled design ruled the highways, dad’s efforts were directed toward building smaller more efficient motors. His engine designs developed power per cubic inch that rivaled the best Detroit, Milwaukee or Europe had to offer. Please join me and let me tell you about this fascinating man.”

 

Guy Reynolds

Yellow Tanker Restoration Update

Last year the Museum tracked down and acquired three of the ten 1961 Yamaha RR250 “Yellow Tankers”. These were Yamaha’s prototype machines for the over the counter TD1 series that led to explosive growth of amateur and pro roadracing in the US. Come find out the progress that’s been made on the restoration of these rare and historic machines. You’ll learn about some of the mysteries that have been solved about them and be able to join in a Q and A session with Guy and Lead Restorer Chuck Huneycutt.

 

Kennie Buchanan

You actually think I can put this together?!”

Kennie Buchanan returns with more knowledge from the family shop of Buchanan’s Spoke and Rim Inc.  Wheel building questions and problems solved.
