A trip across the 20th century on two wheels. This is the proposal of the Bassella Motorcycle Museum, an interesting route starting with the most rudimentary models from the very beginning of the motorcycle until nowadays, through a selection of the main national and international brands of every speciality.
In the centre of the Museum stands out the original workshop where Mario Soler refurbished the majority of motorcycles that shape the present collection. Everything was carefully transported piece by piece from its former location in Bassella, keeping all elements and original details which constitute one of the most remarkable areas in the Museum, where time stopped more than 20 years ago...
Apart from the permanent exhibition 100 years of motorcycle history the Museum displays small temporary samples that are periodically renewed. These will let you get closer to the motorcycling world in different disciplines. At present, you can see the exhibition 50 years of Cota.
The building of the Bassella Motorcycle Museum was built with recovered materials from the old houses of Bassella (small village which disappeared in the year 2000 under the Rialb reservoir waters). The stones in the facade, the roof tiles, some internal paves, the iron banisters,... are some of the centenarian items which were carefully kept, then moved from its former location to the km.134 of the current C-14 road in order to melt with the new construction materials.
