Baster Museum


Baster Museum: for motorbike aficionados

The Baster Museum is devoted to motorbikes, and traces the development of two wheelers from 1905 to 1985. French, Italian, British, American: there’s something for everyone to fall in love with! Either restored or in their original condition, over 400 two-wheelers are displayed in this unique exhibition. The décor sets the scene: enamel license plates, oil cans, collectable posters, and petrol pumps surround numerous iconic motorbikes such as the 4-cylinder TRAIN from 1930, the SS 100 Brough Superior SS 100 from 1927 and even a bright red 750 MV AGUSTA. The Baster Museum also has a wonderful collection of sidecars, each more impressive than the last. This museum will appeal to everyone, whether curious or a passionate aficionado like the museum’s founder: Guy Baster.
