The Mission of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation is to celebrate, elucidate and preserve the rich tradition of motorcycling in America. The charitable purpose of the Foundation includes:
- Preserving the heritage of motorcycling and educating the public in respect to American motorcycling’s great traditions through the operation of a museum.
- Creating and maintaining archives of publications, photographs, records and other documents relevant to the history of motorcycling.
- Maintaining a Hall of Fame to honor those persons who have contributed to the heritage of motorcycling.
- Cooperating with other high quality museums, archives and projects consistent with the mission of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation to develop the premier museum on motorcycling in America.

Created in 1982, the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation created to recognize, record and preserve our motorcycling heritage. Direction of the AMHF is provided by an elected volunteer board.
One of the Foundation’s major goals was to create a Hall of Fame to tell the exciting stories of our community and a permanent repository in which to archive the memorabilia and ephemera of our past. On August 16, 1990, the AMHF realized this major goal when it opened the Motorcycle Heritage Museum adjacent to the AMA headquarters in Westerville, Ohio. The facility featured exhibits depicting all aspects of motorcycling history, but alas space was limited and a larger facility was eventually needed for future growth.
In 1999, the AMHF moved the Museum to a new location adjacent to AMA headquarters in Pickerington, Ohio. And with the new facility came a new name, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum.
The American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation's success to date has been made possible by the generous contributions of individuals, clubs and corporations, including the American Motorcyclist Association. It is only through the generosity of our donors that we can continue to operate and expand the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame and its programs.
