Our Collections

Besides Automobiles, the British Transportation Museum has a mission to collect and preserve other related items.  This includes 15 bicycles, a large library of books, articles, memorabilia and many other related items.

Bicycles

We have over 15 bicycles of British origin.  The bicycle industry was the precursor to many motorcycle and automotive makers.   For example, Triumph started producing bicycles in 1889.  In 1902 they started producing motorcycles and then in 1921 they started producing automobiles.
