A Trip to the Sammy Miller Museum

1963 50cc CR110 Honda one of only 21 imported to Britain before
production stopped after two seasons.

A Trip to the Sammy Miller Museum

1954 BSA MC1 250cc racer designed by Doug Hele that was hoped would eventually  lead to a future production machine. A single Cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts and four radially arranged valves.This machine is complete with  Earles forks and cantilever suspension and was apparently  showing great promise during the course of its development, however in 1955 the BSA  Board of Directors pulled the plug on the project. This Unique machine was eventually rescued and restored for the Museum.

David Essex "On My Bike"

Couldn't resist sharing this one with you, David Essex "On My Bike" The Leopard pattern shirt, the shiny leather jacket and a full head of hair. I picked this up for 50p at a local car boot sale and had to have it just for the Artwork alone never mind the late 80s Bonnie. And of course its from the 1980 " Hot Love" Album....but you knew that didn't you?
