Fire at The National Motorcycle Museum

Posted by Alasdair Bailey on 18:01, 16/9/2003 | , ,
The ARM Club's annual Midlands show, due to be held at The National Motorcycle Museum near Coventry may be cancelled due to a fire currently raging at the venue. BBC Midlands news reports that up to 40% of the bikes are lost and pictures showed the main entrance to the building well alight at 18:45 Tuesday.

We have yet to hear from the ARM Club as to whether their show scheduled for the venue on 29th November will still be able to go ahead at a new venue.

Utterly devastating!
Many of those machines were totally irreplaceable.
It's impossible to put a value on the machines lost as so many of them were one-offs.
Think I'll wear black tomorrow.

I know it is heatbreaking.

They have managed to save some. The picture of the burnt out bikes so sad.

I can't believe they didn't have better fire-prevention methods. In this day and age.

Unregistered user We are working with the Motor Cycle Museum to see what arrangements can be made for the show, but we are also looking at alternate venues.
