The National Motorcycle Museum is still on schedule to officially re-open in December as the last stages of the multi-million pound reonvation are completed.

The museum closed after it was gutted by fire in September 2003, but many of the bikes damaged in the blaze are already restored, such as Harold Danielle's 1932 Racing International Norton. The bike has been restored by Norton ace Keith Manning, and retains 80 per cent of its original components.

And some of the most important ex-works racers are in the advanced stages of their rebuilds and will join the Norton in the museum for the re-opening on December 1, 2004.

The National Motorcycle Museum is based on Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, West Midlands B92 0EJ.
