Collectors from all over the world have promised to donate several hundred motorcycles to the museum

The largest motorcycle museum, Top Mountain Crosspoint, located in the Austrian mountains, was completely destroyed by fire in early 2021, along with all the exhibits. Now there is information that the building will be rebuilt. According to Caradisiac.com, collectors from around the world have pledged to donate 250 motorcycles to the museum – even more than was inserted there before the fire.

The Top Mountain Crosspoint of the Scheiber brothers was called the highest mountain museum in Europe, it is located at an altitude of 2175 meters near the Hochgurl resort in Austria. Before the emergency, there were 230 rare motorcycles in the museum’s collection, but now there may not be enough space – after the restoration of the exhibits, there will be several dozen more, so the Scheiber brothers will have to increase the area to four thousand square meters.

Washers were known for their love of motorcycles. When the brothers collected 30 rare copies, they decided to create their own museum. The exhibition area opened in 2016 in an iconic place: the Timmelsjoch circuit, which connects North and South Tyrol, is famous for its views, and every year many bikers come to admire them.

By 2021, the museum’s collection included models such as the Brough Superior, Vincent, Matchless, Sunbeam and Z├╝ndapp, as well as the James Bond Aston Martin DB5. But in January they all burned down in a fire that started due to technical problems.
