A new motorcycle museum has opened in Lieskovec near Zvolen. Its owner Ján Krnáč has collected 30 rare motorcycles from the inter-war era that originated mostly in the UK.

“I have collected motorcycles for a quarter of year. However, I sold my first collection of pre-war and inter-war motorcycles made in Czechoslovakia and focused on motorcycles from the UK,” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
