While we are waiting to re-open, here’s the next in our series of “look backs” which feature some significant museum moments from the last few years.

2015 saw four times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty MBE choose the museum’s workshop to restore his very first motorcycle!

The little Honda C50 based special was the product of Honda dealer Ken Martin who made the bike for his son Chris around 1972. Purchased from Ken Martin in 1975 by Carl’s dad George, the bike was given to Foggy for his 10th Birthday. Here we see Foggy with the finished product, which is now on display in his house.
