Sammy Miller Museum adds three iconic GP bikes to its collection – ridden by Spencer, Sheene and Hailwood


The Sammy Miller Museum has just purchased three extraordinary GP bikes – ridden by Freddie Spencer, Barry Sheene and Mike Hailwood.

The iconic bikes are from the 60’s and 70’s – when Honda, Suzuki and MZ ruled the world. There’s an ex-works Honda NS 500 which won numerous GPs races with Freddie Spencer at the helm during the 1982/3 season. There’s also a Suzuki RG 500 Mk IV on which racing legend Barry Sheene won two world championships.

And finally, there’s an ex-works 1959 MZ 125 GP bike – raced by Mike Hailwood and designed by Walter Kaaden, the East German two stroke professor, who worked with Wernher von Braun on the German rocket programme, before helping to develop the two-stroke exhaust system.
