  • 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.
  • They got a big lot of road bikes. The place is nice/if you like real road bikes!
  • Museum of Burt Munro. The World's Fastest Indian. very good.
  • I have been buying Indian tee shirts from e hayes and son but when it arrived I noticed the design has changed. Product no. 918316 There is no writing on the back any more and The wording the worlds fastest is smaller so it doesn't look as good as the last design.
