KUDOS

What is getting evolved? Harley Davidsons. Museum owns the Harley davidsons since they have evolved into the touchstone. E changes the meaning of the sentence- museum is evolved. C is correct.

C
These are my reasons:

The National Museum of American History owns Harley-Davidsons of various vintages on account of having evolved into an American touchstone.

A. on account of having - on account of is ackwards for this sentence
B. on account of their having - the same in B
C. because they have - correct. It clearly refers to the Harley-Davidsons
D. because of having - it's not clear. you could understand that the museum has evolved into an American touchstone.
E. because it has - it changes the meaning of the sentence. In this case, the museum has evolved into an American touchstone.

I think I deserve kudos lol
