  • Went in to see the fastest Indian, came away with some NZ outdoor clothing too. Great hardware store. Must see when visiting Invercargill.
  • This store has an amazing collection of Indian motorbikes, including the the original built by Burt Munro. Very interesting place to visit. There is no charge for this visit as it is in a store.
  • Heaps of bikes to admire and enjoy. Highly recommended for bikers, history lovers and rev heads. Very interesting.
  • Cool Exhibits. Friendly Staff. Very interesting and some humorous signage on some of the classics. A MUST DO in Invercargill and FREE. It's all passion here, and easy for anyone to enjoy.
  • Great place to just look around. Lots of old motorbikes and machinery from yester-year.
