Museum gifted Collier machines
The grandson of the great Bob Collier, Matt Collier, has gifted three of his grandfather’s last remaining bikes to the Sammy Miller Museum Trust. Needing full restoration, they will then join the other Collier bikes in the museum...

To mark the inspiration of this great innovator the trust is contemplating a ‘Bob Collier Area.’
The machines are circa 1940s 1056cc Vertical Twin (as featured in the December 1942 issue of Bike Magazine), Austin Seven trials bike and Scottish Six Days 50cc rolling chassis lightweight trials bike.
Matt and Mike Collier paid a visit to the Sammy Miller Museum to hand over the machines.
For anyone keen to see the full collection, the museum address is at Bashley, New Milton, Hampshire B25 5SZ. Tel 01425 620777 / 616644 or visit www.sammymiller.co.uk
