The Tradies/CFMEU business/industrial park that’s burgeoning on its Downer estates no longer has room for the neglected bicycle museum and so all the bikes of the ~1,000 strong collection must go.
The ACT Government is taking some choice bikes, collectors have swooped on some others.
But several hundred are being sold from the dungeon like expanse under the old museum.
Loren, Emma and Drago from Logo Cycles appear to be having the time of their lives sorting out the bikes, giving them a spruce, and taking them out for a ride.
They’re keen for you to come on down to the amazing space and see if there’s something remarkable you’d like to take away.
The old bicycle museum website has a catalogue of some of the items for sale, but bear in mind it’s now out of date.
Loren was also emphatic that all bikes are open to negotiation so it’s well worth making them an offer.
It’s only been open to the public like this for a couple of weeks. They’re encouraging members of the public to come down on Fridays and Saturdays between 10am and 4pm over the next month or so to take a look, take the bikes out for a spin, and make an offer.
You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for another time.
