Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Mecca ex­pands

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

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.
