Photos: Sammy Miller Museum

Submitted by on June 23, 2011

Here are some great photos from Derek Hanbidge’s trip to the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum. Sammy has a massive private collection of totally functional motorcycles all housed in a multi room Museum which forms part of his farm.

It is a wonderful place to visit, owned by a wonderful person. Below are some details about the museum in their words

“Unlike most other museums, this is more than a static collection, to be dusted and polished at regular intervals and displayed like butterflies with pins through them. This is a live museum, for whenever the opportunity presents itself these machines are run in classic bike events of one kind or another. Many of the racing machines are still fully competitive and capable of giving a good account of themselves in high speed parades. Like any good museum, the contents are changing constantly.

Virtually every new acquisition represents a full-scale renovation, with the attendant difficulty in finding missing parts or replacements to exchange for those that are badly worn. New exhibits are being sought all the time, so if you know of anything that is worth rescuing, please let us know and we will follow it up.”
