Unusual Fountain/sculpture of the Week

How about these chaps:

These are located at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama.
From their website:

Home to the world’s best motorcycle collection, the museum now has over 1200 vintage and modern motorcycles and racecars and the largest collection of Lotus cars as well as other significant makes. The collection is the largest of its kind in the world. There are approximately 600 of the 1200 motorcycles on display at any given time. These bikes range from 1902 to current-year production. The common street bikes represented, as well as rare one-off Grand Prix race machinery.
The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is located at the 740 acre
Barber Motorsports Park that includes a world class 2.38 mile racetrack.

I found a website about a visit to the museum with a lot of good photos, including this one:

Interesting looking red and white Norton Commando(?), with cast wheels and a one piece body kit. Anyone identify it?
The museum certainly looks well worth visiting if you're in the area.
