London Motorcycle Museum

Last Sunday I went to this place 5 minutes away from the Ace Cafe. An old farm converted into a sort of museum where the barns now store old bikes. Half of them belong to the family (father,sons and grandsons) the other half belong to people who leave them there only for exhibition and dry storage purposes. Buying selling and fixing old motorcycles (special attention to Triumphs) has been the main family business for a long time now. The father, who also own's REG ALLEN London motorcycle shop dedicated his life to racing, rebuilding and collecting bikes.

A humble place full of old memories and stories told by the owner's son who's spent all his live around bikes.  A place where british motorcycles are worth much more than just money.
