Classic Motorcycle Mecca expands
A large expansion and redevelopment project has begun at Classic Motorcycle Mecca in Invercargill.
In total around 30 local suppliers will be involved in this project, with work not expected to interrupt day to day operations at either Classic Motorcycle Mecca or Meccaspresso Cafe. Joc O’Donnell, Transport World Director says “It’s a very exciting year for Classic Motorcycle Mecca and Transport World. We have been looking forward to progressing this development for quite some time. The new space is not only going to be larger but completely different from what is currently on display. The ways we are planning to present our content and exhibits is not only new for Motorcycle Mecca but also Transport World. We can’t wait for our guests to see it”. Many of the existing 300+ classic motorcycles are set to remain in the collection but their accompanying information and presentation will be significantly different. Unique exhibition concepts are currently under development and they include a much wider scope of motorcycle themes, interactive displays, technological improvements and family friendly exhibits. Excitingly once complete, the revised Motorcycle Mecca space will also house many new bikes from a much wider pool of motorcycle interests. Some of these new inclusions will include (but not limited to) Japanese bikes, Motocross and Speedway. The diversification of the Motorcycle Mecca collection is being made possible through the creation of more exhibit space and the generous offers of long term loans from some of New Zealand’s best private motorbike collections. An official opening date for the revamped Motorcycle Mecca is expected in late 2018.
