    Bike Museum - France

    I am stuck in Southern France over the weekend,and have been doing a little sightseeing.
    Yesterday I happened to see a sign for a bike/motorbike museum, so of I went. It was actually just someones house, and pretty hard to find.

    It was very small and cramped, and the photos are all from my phone, so sorry for the quality.

    All the signs are in French, so I cant give you any details about the bikes, but as you'll see there are some weird contraptions.

    I hope this is the correct section for these photos

    Wow, thanks so much for sharing, very awesome find!

    I'd give my right arm for one of the Draisiennes in the first couple pics, that deer head one in particular.

    If you think it'll fit in carry on baggage, grab it for me, will you?

    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Not a bad place to be “stuck”!

    You don’t see a Wankel engine motorcycle everyday!

    My KTM guy restores and races vintage Hercules enduro bikes. He'd kill for that 74 W2000.
