Earlier this month, the Sammy Miller Museum was the backdrop for a touching wedding anniversary celebration.

Taking a trip around the Sammy Miller Museum for their wedding anniversary, Emma Ainsworth had a surprise up her sleeve for her husband Paul. A little Yamaha TY80 with his name on it.


Launched in 1974, the Yamaha TY80 was a learner oriented trials-style 80cc machine designed by Mick Andrews and produced by Yamaha from 1974-1984. Capable of speeds of around or 40 mph, it uses a gear configuration of neutral in the lowest position, and then ascending upwards from there – rather than having first gear in the lowest position like most modern motorcycles.

This bike was sourced, purchased and renovated by Paul’s family, and is now running and to our eyes, looks immaculate. Emma said that she couldn’t have wished for a better place to bring Paul to for the big reveal, as the Museum was one of his Dad’s favourite places before he passed away.
