Riom City Guide
Baster Museum: for motorbike aficionados
Located next to ACE Hotel Riom, 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.
