The National Motorcycle Museum team wants to thank everyone who entered our first Covid-19 appeal raffle, the prize draw of which took place on Monday 21/12/20. As promised, the funds raised are being used directly for the purpose of reopening the museum for a limited number of days once Government restrictions allow.

Whilst the funds raised so far will allow us to reopen in a limited way, as of mid-December 2020 we had still only raised 33% of our original £500k re-opening target. Therefore we are undertaking this further ‘Museum Triumph Over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle’, which gives the chance to win one of the three stunning Triumph’s shown.

Very special thanks must go to our friends at Triumph Motorcycles for donating the brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660cc motorcycle as a first prize. Along with everyone that has contributed by purchasing a raffle ticket in the past, or given to our appeal fund, Triumph Motorcycles have been a huge support to us at this difficult time.

1st Prize: Brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660cc motorcycle.

Stunning new model donated by our friends at Triumph Motorcycles.

2nd Prize: 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc motorcycle.

Low mileage and only one previous owner.

T160 2nd

3rd Prize: 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc motorcycle.

Fresh from a partial restoration in the museum’s own workshop.

T100 3rd

The prize draw for the “Triumph Over Adversity” appeal raffle will take place on Friday 25th June 2021 at The National Motorcycle Museum. Please note that this second Covid-19 appeal raffle is separate to our normal winter raffle which gives you the chance to win a new/old stock Triumph T140D Bonneville.

Tickets cost £6.00 each & can be purchased online by visiting
