The sale features an unprecedented series of mechanical musical instruments, automobiles and collectibles, including a select series of six classic motorcycles.

After playing host to countless visitors and charitable events, the museum doors will open one final time Feb. 24-25 as the Milhous brothers offer their collection for auction.

The auction will cater to bike enthusiasts with six classic motorcycles poised for the auction podium. Highlights include:

A 1972 Harley-Davidson FLH-1200 Electra-Glide Motorcycle, presented in very good condition and an excellent example for extended cruising; a 1949 Indian Scout Motorcycle, a rare survivor from Indian’s low-production period; and, a 1972 Triumph T-150V Trident Motorcycle, frequently referred to as the “first modern superbike” and the last new design from Britain’s Triumph Engineering Co. Ltd.
