Dean's motorcycle to be displaced at state museum

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A motorcycle belonging to Indiana native James Dean will soon be on display at the Indiana State Museum.

The Indianapolis Star reports the 1955 500cc Triumph is part of the museum's upcoming "Eternal James Dean" exhibit and will go on display Nov. 23.

The "Rebel Without a Cause" star Dean made three movies before he was killed in a traffic accident at the age of 24.

The museum's display won't include the Porsche he was driving when he was killed, but it will feature a 1949 Ford that Dean borrowed from his uncle to take his date to his high school prom.

Dean was born in Marion and grew up in Fairmount.
