Queens­land Mu­seum moves

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The Aus­tralian Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum, es­tab­lished at Haigslea, Queens­land, in 2007 by Allen and Lor­raine Smith, is on the move. For the past seven years, Allen and Lor­raine have man­aged to run the mu­seum seven days a week, plus find time for over­seas trips to ac­quire new stock for the mu­seum and for gen­eral sale. That work­load has taken its toll and the Smiths will soon be mov­ing into a new home in Bris­bane, where they will re­tain the ma­jor­ity of the cur­rent stock of 300 bikes as a pri­vate collection. Some of the cur­rent ex­hibits will be sold, in­clud­ing the For­cy­cle Du­cati GT750 raced by Peter Muir, the ex-Jack Dil­lon Har­ley WLA, and the ex-Keith Camp­bell 500cc Manx Nor­ton. The ‘big bike’ sculp­ture, built by Ted God­dard which was fea­tured in OBA 36, is still for sale. Con­tact Allen on 07 5464 4916.
