He seems to have everything and can talk about bikes for ever. Easy to pull in north of Kirk Michael and lots of parking. Plus he is on the TT course.

Handy to visit - adjacent to the bus stop. Interesting array of immaculate old bikes and a pleasant garden. They don't charge an entry fee but understandably ask for a charitable donation.

A superb collection of well over 100 motorcycles - most of them British made and in full working order. The 2-stroke Villiers engine collection is probably unique. Lots of unusual motorcycle memorabilia. The owner, Tony East, is a mine of information, aided by wife Pat....More

Made the effort to visit only to find it closed opening times are not advertised. We had to wait almost a hour for the next bus back to Ramsey. Check times before you visit

An ideal place to visit especially on a wet day, a very good selection of classic motorcycles, and Tony who owns the place is a very friendly and approachable guy, well worth a visit.

Fantastic collection of vintage motorcycles. There are two motorcycles that have a backdrop of the Isle of Mann TT course. You can sit on the bikes putting on old leather piolet helets and goggles then have your picture taken.

Sadly there are no actual Rockers in their leathers and boots to make this emporium buzz with the excitement of the early 1960s
