About National Motorcycle Museum

The National Motorcycle Museum is home to the largest collection of British motorcycles in the world. With over 1000 machines in the collection, lovingly restored to the original manufacturers’ specifications, it provides a spectacular tribute to the region’s ‘60 Glorious Years’ of success!

Displayed across five large halls the collection includes both road and competition machines from 1898 through to Modern Triumphs from the resurgent Hinckley factory.

Halls 1 to 4 feature the road going machines and unique prototypes including the incredible Brough Superior Golden Dream.

Hall 5 contains  legendary competition machines including the Triumph Streamliner, responsible for raising the absolute motorcycle land speed record to 214.17mph in 1956, and the Vincent Super Nero that took the world standing-start mile record to 27.979 seconds seven years later.

There’s also the 1921 BSA works TT model, John Brittain’s 1950 Royal Enfield, the 1969 TT-winning Triumph T120 Bonneville and many, many more.

This is all supported by a wealth of photography, original documentation and advertising from the era, adding depth and creating a truly unique visitor experience. As regards documentation we are proud that the famous Bruce Main-Smith archive (including a lot of original material) now forms part of our portfolio. We are pleased to be able to continue to supply all the Workshop Manuals, Parts Books, Sale’s Catalogues & Instruction Books that have always formed such a valuable resource to both restorers & enthusiasts. As a friend of the National Motorcycle Museum you are entitled to receive one free photo-copy set from the BMS archive open year.
