The Sammy Miller Museum is an historically important collection of road and competition motorcycles which focuses on the golden age of the sport in the 1950s and 60s. The collection includes some of the most outstanding machines ever raced, and almost all are in running order. Many have been lovingly restored, and some have been left with their original patina.

1962 Villiers Special

Built by engineer Bill Hindes then bought by Villiers for evaluation, this special used as many standard components as possible, with two Villiers 2T twins as the basis. A Shorrock supercharger was fitted to force the petrol/oil mixture into the cylinders. A Douglas Dragonfly frame and Norton forks are used.
