Throwback Thursday – Photos from the Sammy Miller Museum

On holiday in the New Forest recently I visited the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum in New Milton – one of the world’s largest motorcycle collections. It’s well worth a visit and you need at least a couple of hours to look round this amazing collection of rare bikes dating from 1898 up to the 1990s.  Take a look at http://sammymiller.co.uk/  for more information about the museum.  Meanwhile here’s just a few selected photos of bikes from the collection – mainly Triumph, plus a few others I particularly liked:
