The history of motorbikes

Displayed in a chronological order – from 1900 to 1980 – in three rooms of the castle, Claude Reynaud's collection depicts the evolution of the two-wheelers. You are in the private house of a passionnate, historian and expert collector who chose to open the door of his collection to the visitors.

The collection of motorbikes is the logical continuation of the collection of cycles as without the latter the motorbikes would have never been invented...

The motos displayed are related to a historical context, from 1900s with the Automoto an oil-burning tricycle, to the 1980s with the Electra-Glide Harley-Davidson. 80 years of technical - but also social – evolutions.
