Cooper Display


We have an exciting new display in Hall 2 of the museum, which will be available to see until the end of 2020.
This new feature is dedicated to John “Mooneyes” Cooper and includes, not only his famous “Ago beating” F750 BSA, but also a live interview conducted with John by our archives & collections assistant Sarah. This informal chat gives a fascinating insight into the racing career of “Mooneyes” and contains some choice anecdotes!
