The National Motorcycle Museum has launched an appeal to help its doors remain open. And YOU can help.
The National Motorcycle Museum needs YOUR help

Many businesses have been hit hard by the last few months, but The National Motorcycle Museum is in danger of not re-opening due to the losses they’ve incurred as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s why they’re asking for help.

Museum Director James Hewing explained: “Without the income from our three sister businesses, the museum may not be able to reopen, and then remain open until they return to normal trading.The museum itself requires a surplus of around £500,000 per year just to break even. Therefore, on Friday 17/07/20, the museum will be launching an appeal which gives people the chance to help us raise the £500,000 required in two different ways”

There are two ways you can support the Solihull-based bastion of biking; you can go to the website and donate to the reopening appeal fund – or you can buy tickets for their new raffle…


As always, there are some special bikes up for grabs in the raffle. The first prize is a brand new (old stock, obviously) 850cc Norton Commando from 1977. Second and third prizes are good too – second is an immaculately restored 1948 Ariel NG 350, and third is a restored 1959 BSA B31 350. Tickets cost just £6 each.

The draw will be held just before Christmas so, if you’re fortunate, you’ll have one hell of a Christmas present, AND you’ll be helping part of Britain’s biking heritage! For more information, click HERE.
