OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An exhibit on the history and art of motorcycles opens tomorrow at the Oklahoma History Center.

Forty-one motorcycles, including some early ones, will be on display at the Oklahoma City museum.

The 2007 Honda Interceptor and a 2008 Victory Arlen Ness are the newest motorcycles in the display.

The exhibit will be open through November 9th.
