About the Museum

The LMM - London’s only Motor Cycle museum - is the capital’s friendly focus for Britain’s biking history and heritage. Not only do they have some 80 machines and other exhibits on permanent display - there are another 50/60 machines in reserve, and a knowledgeable staff with a wealth of personal insights and stories! The LMM isn’t just a great static display. During the year our bikes appear in shows and exhibitions. In 2007 the Museum had two bikes in Brent Museum for an exhibition celebrating the Ace Cafe. In July 2008, the Museum celebrated 50 years of the Triumph Bonneville. It was originally built in Late 1958 for public launch in 1959. Last year the Museum attended the Beezumph rally, Beaulieu Motor Cycle World, Hampshire Police and Cheshire Police open days, plus many more events, gatherings and meets. Bill Crosby, the museum’s founder, was born into Westminster Barracks in April 1932 the son of Sgt William Crosby, Master of the Stables in the Grenadier Guards. But Sgt Crosby’s son would grow up to be master of a different kind of horse power. He lived in London all his life apart from a brief evacuation to Suffolk to stay with his grandparents during the war. After completing his national service in the King’s Royal Rifle Corps, Bill returned to Civvy street. Motor Cycles had always been a big part of Bill’s life and he regularly repaired his own bikes and those of friends.
