SMM - 001
Sammy Miller is a genuine motorcycling legend having successfully raced for the factory Mondial race team (finishing 3rd in the '57 250 championship and 4th in the 125s) before changing sports to trials riding the following year for Ariel. He then won 11 consecutive British titles, 2 European titles and 9 gold medals in the ISDT. He is estimated to have won some 1,300 trials events over the course of his career. In 1964 he moved to Bultaco and was responsible for the design of the Sherpa T. In 1977 Honda employed him to design & develop the 305 trials bike. After outgrowing several earlier locations his ever expanding collection found its present home at Bashley Manor in New Milton, Hampshire in 1990. It houses over 400 bikes, of which all but four run. The collection is notable for the large number of prototypes and extremely rare models, including race bikes, that are on display. Photographed in 2015.
