The museum is well advertised and has a good website, but nothing can replace a visit to this haven for any biker who grew up with this country's two-wheeled products. Like the Heritage Collection at Gaydon, Warwickshire, some of the motorcycles are prototypes, and one wonders what if .......; sadly the case for so much of British industry - cars, aircraft .... need I go on?
From the website I thought that just over 100 bikes were displayed - but in fact there are in excess of 800! From the earliest right up to the final offerings from the original Triumph company in Meriden, just down the road. The condition of all the bikes is better than showroom - a credit to the two engineers who look after the collection. There is one exception - three bikes are displayed in the condition they were left in after the disastrous fire in 2003, and I gather that there are still many bikes still waiting to be restored.
The collection is a credit to the private owners; car (and bike) parking is easy, there's a restaurant, and it's on the roundabout of junction 6 of the M42, on the opposite side to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre, and it's UNMISSABLE!
