What a special place....... we were the only people there as it was out of season, and could really spend ample time looking and learning. The owner answered all our questions and we could see the passion he have for these beauties.

A fast growing collection of bikes and a clearly enthusiastic group of collectors! Thanks for letting us see these bike instead of locking them in a dusty old warehouse! If you need anyone to take them for a run, give me a call....

Great place for a family visit. Kids loved it. There are comfy couches and magazines for mom to read in the lounge while having a coffee. Play area for small kids too.
