Lane Motor Museum opened its newest public exhibit displaying The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach’s Vintage Harley-Davidson collection.

While known as a talented musician with a passionate work ethic, Auerbach’s passion for vintage motorcycles is less well known. His collection consists of those Harley-Davidsons that have not been fully restored, yet retain much of the character of the prior owners, including the modifications that reflect their personalities.

Ten of these motorcycles will be on display in the exhibit The Dan Auerbach Collection: Vintage Harley-Davidsons from 1937-1950, at Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, TN.

“We are honored and thrilled to host Dan’s vintage Harley collection” said Jeff Lane, Lane Motor Museum director. “This is the first time that Dan’s collection is being shown to the public and he has such unique pieces so full of character that casual observers and collectors alike will enjoy it.”

From the revolutionary 1937 EL “Knucklehead”, Auerbach’s first Harley, to his favorite, a 1940 EL nicknamed “Red Devil,” these bikes fuse his appreciation for folk art with the sound and ride that only a vintage Harley can deliver.

As the son of an antique dealer, Auerbach caught the bug early for a vintage aesthetic that has carried into his adult life. Filled with patina and personality, each of the bikes in this collection reflect his love and appreciation for a time long past. All of the bikes are in working order and are ridden often by Auerbach.
