Motorcycles have figured prominently in just about every aspect of 20th-century life. Classic and vintage motorcycles have become highly collectible, especially among baby boomers.

The first motorcycles were produced in the late 19th century, on both sides of the Atlantic. Some of the earliest efforts were simply small motors attached to a bicycle. In the 20th century, hundreds of makers produced motorcycles of all varieties, including Indian, Harley-Davidson, Ducati, Crocker, BMW, Triumph, Honda and more.

Two American companies, Indian and Harley-Davidson, dominated the market in the U.S. until the waves of British and Japanese imports in the 1950s and 1960s respectively. While Indian ultimately failed, Harley-Davidson made a comeback in the 1980s, and its vintage 'hogs' are now a favorite of riders and collectors.
