October 27 sees the National Motorcycle Museum’s fifth annual free open day at the venue in Solihull, at which not only do all and sundry gain free access to the UK’s most expansive motorcycle museum, but the venue also plays host to a variety of extra attractions, not least of which are a large indoor autojumble and loads of trade stands.
Additionally, some of the museum’s own restoration team, plus many of the people and businesses who are involved with the work that the museum undertakes on its display bikes, will be on hand.
This includes nearby wheel specialists Central Wheels, who will be available to chat and offer advice, with wheel-building demonstrations showing just how to align your spokes and nipples, alongside Calibre Customs, who paint the museum’s exhibits, and Redditch Powder Coaters.
In addition, renowned tuner Fred Walmsley will be attending, as will military motorcycle expert and restorer John Moore, Norton Rotary race bike engineer Brian Crighton and The Classic Motorcycle’s very own James Robinson.
