*** The VINTAGE TRICYCLE MUSEUM ***

The VINTAGE TRICYCLE MUSEUM is a collection of veteran and vintage tricycles that can be seen online and taken to shows and exhibitions throughout the year.

********************

TRICYCLE WAS THE FIRST CAR:

What was your experience of history lessons at school?

Mine was a series of wars plus boring details of religion and royal families. Nothing about ordinary people. We had to learn dates by repetition, and the teacher had a long flexible stick he used frequently.

How I wish, in retrospect, someone had been available to bring in a collection of tricycles so I could have learned about life in the 19th century through Great Britain’s wonderful transport heritage. We were at the cutting edge of invention, development, manufacture and sales. It’s a history of which we should be proud.

I studied history much later in life, through ownership of vintage vehicles. Having recently decided to change my theme, I’m selling my collection of veteran and vintage tricycles + this website.

A new custodian may now share the pleasures of vintage vehicles by exhibiting them and helping others discover more about our fabulous British motoring heritage…
