Located along the majestic St. Lawrence River, l' Épopée de la Moto is the first motorcycling museum in Quebec. Since opening in June 2003, it has welcomed more than 30,000 visitors.

The Museum is the property of brothers François and Jean Gagnon and is the fruit of a long-standing passion shared by both brothers who have been collecting motorcycles for over 30 years. Their goal is to assemble a collection containing specimens from each period. Today, their exceptional collection contains 140 motorcycles, mopeds and scooters, of which 100 are currently on display.

motorcycle history

Motorcycle History Museum says " Everyone a driver!" That was the slogan Gustave-Adolphe Clément proposed for his totally equipped bicycle. The steam-powered Autocyclette Clément travelled up to 40 km/hour. In 1901 the Autocyclette won first and second place in the less than 30 kg class. In 1902, the first motorcycle police patrolled Paris on an Autocyclette resembling the one pictured here.

William S. Harley, age 21, completes a blueprint drawing of an engine designed to fit into a bicycle. In 1903, Harley and Arthur Davidson make available to the public the first production Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. The bike was built to be a racer, with a 3-1/8 inch bore and 3-1/2 inch stroke. The factory in which they worked was a 10 x 15-foot wooden shed with the words "Harley-Davidson Motor Company" crudely scrawled on the door.
