The highest motorcycle museum has been burnt to flames
200 classic motorcycle are now lost
Austria’s Top Mountain Crosspoint Motorcycle Museum featuring 230 historical motorcycles from over 100 different manufacturers was burnt yesterday.
The museum has classic motorcycles from manufacturers like Harley-Davidson, Indian, and Flying Merkel. Classic cars from Porsche, Ferrari and Aston Martin were also found in the museum.
Located at the Timmelsjoch Pass's Austrian side, the museum was started by two brothers who loved motorcycles since they were children. Slowly and steadily they built a collection and then showcased it to people via the museum.
Due to COVID-19, the museum was closed for the public. It is reported that that fire took place at around 4am and the alarm alerted one of the museum's worker who called the fire-fighters. Unfortunately, by the time the fire-fighters came the roof of the museum was engulfed in fire.
The museum has not shared any details about the fire yet, though it has been said that nearly 200 iconic motorcycles have gone missing. *SOB*
