Musée des motos anciennes de Celles-sur-Belle
12 Rue des Halles, 79370 Celles-sur-Belle, France
The larger part of the collection was assembled by Pierre Certain, a motorcycle enthusiast who donated it to the town of Celles-sur-Belle. A keen motorcyclist from an early age who road many thousands of kilometres around Europe, he was inspired by his father who himself was a collector and died as a result of a motorcycle accident.
The museum presents two collections, in total some 250 motorcycles covering the period from the early days of the 20th century through to the 1960s. Included are machines of French, Belgian, British, German, American and Italian manufacture.
Marques represented include Terrot, BSA, Rudge, Norton, Zundapp, BMW, Nimbus and Solex, the latter represented by a special exhibition of some 30 different models.
