The final few pictures from a recent visit to Sammy Miller's museum in Hampshire. Do yourself a favour and visit if you can, it's the finest collection of technically interesting, unusual and rare motorcycles anywhere.
|Truly gorgeous 1913 BAT TT Roadster model|
fitted with the legendary JAP '90 bore' 1270cc
|1911 Western Star. An Australian brand fitted with a Coventry|
made Arno motor.
|East German IFA flat twin two stroke 350cc. IFA went on to|
|The one-off Hawthorne four. A straight four motor in an OEC|
duplex steering frame.
|Close up on the Hawthorne 4's power plant.|
|1923 Sheppee Cyclaid. Made in York and in many ways ahead|
of its time. The Cyclaid pre-dated the autocycle boom of the
late thirties by 15 years. The bike was the most successful machine
of the immediate post WW1 first cyclemotor boom.
|Can't help but think that handling must be interesting|
with all that weight on the front. You wouldn't want
to wear your best shoes or trousers either with all
that 1920s two stroke exhaust guffing out by your feet.
