At the first floor of the museum, you will enjoy some of the models produced at the start of the 20th century fitted with gas light, like a Clement of 1902 manufactured in France or a spectacular 4 cylinders FN with a wicker side-a-car of 1914. An evolution along the mythical European brands (BSA, Norton, Triumph, Ducati,...) and some rare interesting units like a Gillet España that was used by the Spanish police and only 50 units were manufactured.
American brands are exhibited there as well, such as an Indian of 1925 or a Harley-Davidson with side-a-car used as taxi in Barcelona. We may as well highlight a section devoted to military models that proves how the various wars have served as experimentation laboratories for new technical solutions. so A lot of military models were eventually used as popular models for civil use.
This exhibition also includes a selection of the main national brands (Montesa, Bultaco, OSSA, Derbi, Sanglas, Rieju, Lube,...) and the consequences of the Japanese brands invasion with specific examples as is the case of the Montesa-Honda created in 1986.
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...
