The Cultural Center of Cape Cod’s “Art on Two Wheels” exhibit includes rare, vintage and custom Harley-Davidson racing motorcycles.

Art appears in an uncommon guise when the Cultural Center of Cape Cod departs from more “traditional” forms to present “Art on Two Wheels.” The large exhibit, on display Saturday through Nov. 27, will include rare, vintage and custom Harley-Davidson racing motorcycles, plus related art and memorabilia.

“We’ve hosted hundreds of amazing exhibits since we opened in 2007, including ... every kind of art you can imagine, but this one will take the cake,” said Robert Nash, the center’s executive director in announcing the exhibit.

Nash describes the more than 40 motorcycles that will be on exhibit as “beautiful examples of ingenuity, artistic design and America’s love of the open road.”

The rare and vintage machines – all but one a Harley – are from the collection of Cape Cod resident David McGraw, who, according to information on the exhibit, has worked for decades “to acquire and restore iconic Harleys and other fine machines.” He owns close to 75 of the classic motorcycles.
