I started work on this free public bicycle database in 2006, launching the world’s first Online Bicycle Museums in 2007. It soon developed into the primary resource for vintage bicycles, and I’m still constantly updating the main Online Museum – www.oldbike.eu/museum – as well as creating new museum websites.
From the main Museum Website, you can visit over 30 separate websites for specialised areas of interest. Some are devoted to individual manufacturers, such as Raleigh, BSA, Premier, Triumph, Rudge-Whitworth, Humber, Peugeot, Sun, Hercules, Warrick, Columbia, Iver Johnson, Hendee Indian, Rambler, Mercury. Others refer to particular styles, such as Military Bicycles, Truss Bridge Frames, Cross Frames, Chainless Gears, Tradesmen’s Bikes, Character Bikes, Bicycle Cameras, Cyclemotors, Tricycles, Cycle-Sidecars, etc.

There is no advertising anywhere on the 30+ Online Bicycle Museum websites.
But I support this free public internet database by restoring and selling vintage vehicles:
