Originally built in 1921, five years before historic Route 66 was certified, this small roadside building in Chandler, Oklahoma, started out as a station selling Nevrnox gasoline. It morphed into a machine and engine rebuilding shop. The building was sold in 2007 and after several years of renovations, it reopened in 2010 as a motorcycle museum.
The museum is jam-packed with all kinds of bikes, mostly motorbikes but also pedal bikes. Road bikes, racing bikes, off-road bikes, motocross bikes. There are more than 65 vintage motorcycles in the collection that range from early 20th-century designs to more recent models. Many have descriptions, so even if you aren’t familiar with bikes or motorcycles, you’ll know exactly what you’re looking at.
This small spot exudes the vibe of traveling on Route 66. A quick stop at a roadside museum or attraction to gain a little knowledge and get a good photo op is at the heart of the Route 66 travel experience. The Seaba Station Motorcycle Museum fits this bill perfectly.
