If you like bikes, then you must not miss visiting this museum when passing through Tamworth. For just $8-00 you will see about 50 motorcycles of various vintages all I immaculately maintained. A place to drool and reminisce.

Even though it is small it has a great range of bikes that are meticulously restored. It doesn't cost a fortune to go through so it is well worth spending an hour or so. The staff have a great knowledge of local rides.
