Motorbike Collection

As part of our vehicle collection we also have several motorcycles and scooters some of the more famous among the collection is the Levis owned by Harold Breach. Motorcycle football was once very popular in Gloucestershire and often attracted crowds of over 10,000 supporters. Our Levis belonged to Harold a well known player for Gloucester. A new exhibition about motorcycle football is planned for our new gallery.

Another bike to have a look at on our database is the Brough Superior, regarded as a super bike capable of high speeds, nicknamed by many 'the widow maker' because of the large number of fatalities, most notably Laurence of Arabia was killed on his Brough Superior.
