    Go to Make/Model on the home page or The Collection by year.
    Check out the 52 Falcone with Delonghi sidecar, its a bloody work of art and I am not a Harley man but the blue 52 model K looks great.

    Enjoy.

    An impressive collection. Their 1926 police spec Harley Model J used to belong to someone I know. At the time he sold it the museum were buying up dozens of bikes at a time and shipping them off to NZ. When the truck arrived to collect his it already had about 5 bikes on board including couple of Velocettes & a Manx Norton and was on its way around the UK picking up more.

    Sorry to drag up an old thread, but yes this place is amazing. If you can, go!
    We're pretty lucky here in the Top of the South, along with this collection there is also:
    http://www.wowcars.co.nz/1908renaultax
    and an hour or so ride away:
    http://www.omaka.org.nz/

    You will need at least two days to go through them all....

    Fiat500, I see you're in Richmond? I am too. There's a guy not far from my place with a Fiat 500 in a shed, also or at least used to be a 124 coupe at the same place.

    Hi Revhead. I was just about to post that I went for a final look around NZCM today before it closes in two week when I saw your last two posts, not sure how I missed them as I usually check everyday.

    Will try and contact you off site and see if you want to catch up for a chat/drink /ride.
    Cheers Steve.
