Looking back to the ’60s and ’70s, arguably the golden age of motorcycles, Italian sports bikes and cafe racers reigned supreme. Brands like Ducati, Benelli and MV Agusta were on the tip of every tongue, winning races on the track with pure performance and winning hearts in the streets relying on their beauty alone.

Stuart Parr, the owner of one of the most impressive motorcycle collections in the world, has opened up his flock to the public. The Art of the Italian Two Wheel exhibition in Miami, Florida, celebrates over 30 motorcycles from Parr’s private collection. The Exhibition runs through April 22 but opens today. If you happen to be in Miami’s Design District, it’s worth a peek.
