Billy Joel shares his dream.

This is a regular stop on Oyster Bay Cruise Night-a Disneyland of two wheelers. Not only Harleys-Indians, Moto Guzzis, Vincents, Triumphs, Ducatis, etc.

If in town, it's a must stop. Such a great collection of bikes from really really old to very new. Owned by Billy Joel and can even see him spotted there some times!

I believe this place is owned by Billy Joel, definitely worth stopping by when in OB. It is on a side street so don't miss it when in town

This museum has a great collection of restored vintage bikes arranged in a very interesting presentation. We parked for free on the streets of the sleepy town of Oyster Bay, had lunch on a Sunday afternoon at the local pub, and strolled by the railroad museum and the vintage bike shop (museum). There is no charge to visit 20th Century... More

We visited the museum for about 45 minutes as an add on to our visit to another museum in town. I would call it more an exhibition than a museum. It exhibits Billy Joel's motor cycle collection. The woman who runs the place is married to Billy Joel's full time motor cycle mechanic. She is very nice and knowledgeable about... More

What started out as a simple visit ended as confirmation of the Greatness that is Billy Joel... Tricia took the time to tell us stories about the bikes and about Billy himself. Even though we missed the Man himself, hearing stories through Tricia only confirmed what a compassionate and generous soul he is. My family enjoyed the visit and hope... More

Everyone who loves motorcycles or even has a passing interest should like this place. There is a collection of flawless bikes and some currently under restoration/repair. The lady watching over the facility was informed and engaged. She spoke with us at length and answered all questions and told a few interesting stories about the shop and the owner.
