Think we should have a ex pro's bike special month get em all together,yeti's,Raleigh's etc as a few have appeared of late?


We are currently curating these authentic race bikes to be display in our "museum". We are looking for collectors who have these bikes and sourcing them to be on display both on our site as well as our showroom.

Ride on!

Nice bike, does that BIG logo mean you are selling it or just advertising?

This bike is not for sale... It is part of our museum.

Before I get shot down, can I ask what the feeling is regarding nominations from a person and ownership of a bike to a collective whether that's a shop, museum or other non-for profit organisation?

The reason I ask is that technically, we could have nominations from other museums of incredibly rare, one-off, bespoke, or totally original, or never seen before machines that whilst are truely of wonder and awe, could blitz us, the lowly average retrobikers bikes out of the water.

Yes, the proof is in the voting and I apologise if this has been raised before. I'm just curious what the view is and whether it's in the spirit of the competition.

Thanks for your insight. Extremely valuable. Any other pearls of wisdom?

No offense Nick and that's a great bike for sure, but here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=254563&p=1907872#p1907872 just 2 weeks ago, you were "open to offers on the NED bike, you can PM for details."

In any case, that's a cool bike. What other bikes are going into your museum?
