The Motorcycle Story display at the National Motor Museum

From the early days of motorsport to urban counter-culture, the National Motor Museum presents the Motorcycle Story.

The Motorcycle Story immerses the visitor in a ride through motorcycling history and the human quest for freedom, individuality and the desire to win. For the first time, machines are displayed in their historical and cultural context; tying technological developments to changing trends in fashion, style and sport.

The exhibition contains objects from the Museum Collections including clothing worn and trophies won by sporting greats in displays which cover varied racing disciplines, as well as road safety, British 'Mods and Rockers' youth culture of the 1950s and 60s and the Ace Café.

Central to the new display is the Motorcycling Icons Wall of Fame. A gallery featuring the top twenty riders as voted for by the public. Over 7,000 votes were cast, both online and at motorcycling events across the South of England.

'The Motorcycle Story' is included in the general admission ticket to Beaulieu.
