    1958 Ariel Cyclone Motorcycle
    November 18, 2014 – January 4, 2015

    The 1958 Ariel Cyclone Motorcycle motorcycle once belonged to Buddy Holly and was recently purchased from the Waylon Jennings Estate auction and placed on long-term loan to the Center. The 1958 Ariel Cyclone was originally purchased by Buddy Holly on May 13, 1958 at Ray Miller’s Triumph Motorcycle Sales in Dallas, Texas. It has a high compression 650cc headmaster engine. The motorcycle was a gift to Waylon Jennings in 1979 by members of The Crickets, Joe B. Maudlin, Sonny Curtis and Jerry Allison on the occasion of Jennings’ forty-second birthday. During a 1980’s episode of The Dukes of Hazzard, Waylon made an appearance where his traveling museum was hijacked. Buddy’s motorcycle figured prominently in that episode. The exhibition also includes platinum records, a movie poster, a bronze bust and a Rolex watch that came from the auction.
