Default Re: Nev & Jo NZ2018 South Island

Day 6 Invercargill

We took another non-riding day in Invercargill to spend some more time in the town. The town is setting itself up as the transport capital of NZ, being home to several museums. The most recent is the Motorcycle Mecca which is a two level museum in the main shopping strip in town.

The collection was assembled by an American millionaire living at the other end of the island in Nelson. He started the collection in 2008 and by 2016 when he sold it the collection contained around 300 motorcycles mainly from the first half of the 20th century. The collection was whittled down to around 200 bikes. All are immaculately presented. Many are restored to almost showroom condition.

We spent a couple of hours in here gawking.
