Dale’s Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley will hold its 17th annual raffle on Nov. 9. The museum houses America’s best collection of rare and vintage motorcycles, and each year, the restoration team at the museum selects a classic American motorcycle then meticulously restores it to period condition to give away to one lucky winner.
The day’s celebration will include the firing of rare and vintage machines, multiple door prizes, food trucks and will culminate in the giving away of this year’s grand prize, a beautifully restored 1936 Harley Davidson Knucklehead Bobber in black and vermillion red.
1936 marks the first year of production for Harley Davidson’s iconic Knucklehead engine and has become one of America’s most sought after motorcycles. The second prize in the raffle is $10,000, and third place is $5,000.
The annual raffle is the museum’s biggest fundraiser, and all the proceeds are used to further the vision of collecting, reviving and preserving American motorcycle and transportation history.
Since relocating to Maggie Valley in 2002, the museum has given away 17 motorcycles to winners all across the United States.
Hours of operation for Raffle Day, Nov. 9 are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and the grand prize drawing will be at 2 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $7 for Children and $12 for military veterans and those 65 and over.
