Museum members given chance to ride classic machines

The National Motorcycle Museum Friend’s Scheme is giving its members the chance to take part in classic bike tours, Try a Classic days and workshop training days.

The first workshop day of 2016 will be held in the Birmingham museum’s Premier suite on 27 February. The hosted event will feature sessions presented by suppliers and partners of the museum including wheel building with Central Wheel Components Ltd of nearby Coleshill.

The first Try a Classic Bike day will be held on 12 March. Friend’s scheme members will, for a fee of £5 to cover insurance, get the chance to ride various motorcycles from the museum’s inventory in a “closed roads” environment within the museum grounds.

Classic bike tours will be held on 3 April, 18 June and 24 September. Members will have the opportunity to ride some of the most exciting and valuable classic motorcycles from the museum’s inventory, escorted by ex-police motorcyclists around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The machinery ranges from a BSA C15 to a Brough Superior SS100! Each class of machine attracts a different “hire” fee which includes insurance costs and lunch in the museum restaurant.
