The LMM - Londons only motorcycle museum - is the capitals friendly focus for Britains biking history and heritage.
Not only do we have some 100 machines and other exhibits on permanent display we have many more machines in reserve, plus a knowledgeable staff with a wealth of knowlege, personal insights and stories!
Our ever-growing collection (see Inventory for current details) includes a 1902 Ormonde (a past participant in the Pioneer Run) and a 1903 Clyde (with unique SIMS magneto); a clutch of unique prototypes and media stars which cannot be seen anywhere else; a barrel load of other British machines, including racers and road bikes from ABC to Zenith; the Crosby collection of Triumphs including the last Triumph T140 out of the Meriden gates in 1983 and a 1991 Norton rotary in Paramedic livery.
Carrying the Biking Banner
The LMM isn’t just a great static display. Every year our bikes appear in shows and exhibitions across the country and abroad too!
We've attended TR30C's Beezumph rally, Beaulieu Motorcycle World, Hampshire Police and Cheshire Police open days, our Queen's Golden Jubilee Parade, Paris's Bike Show, 'The Art of Motorcycle' in Rio de Janeiro plus countless more events, gatherings and meets.
We also have bikes that have starred in Eastenders, Dad’s Army and George and Mildred.
We regularly take machines to community events, county shows and carnivals as well as hosting our own special events and ride ins, on the museum premises (see our events page).
An apology - For some time we’ve been negotiating grants and working hard on museum improvements. This has meant our web pages have been left largely unchanged and sometimes out of date. We’re sorry for that and updates/changes are now under way. Keep checking the site.
