THE NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM is currently closed, but when visitors are welcome again, there will be a new attraction.

This new feature is dedicated to racing legend John ‘Mooneyes’ Cooper and includes not only his famous Agostini beating F750 BSA, but also a live interview conducted with John by the museum’s archives and collections assistant Sarah.

This informal chat gives a fascinating insight into the racing career of Mooneyes and contains some choice anecdotes.

The display is inHall 2 of the museum and will be available to see until the end of 2020.
