The owners of the unique collection of ancient bicycles in Latvia are Guntis and Janis Seregins. Collection of bicycles dates back to the 1977. The collection consists of technically most interesting samples of bicycle development history found in Latvia. There is one of the first Latvian made highwheel bicycle produced in 1886, cycle "Coventry" produced in England with the first pneumatic tyres, as well as cycle "Safety" manufactured in the first bicycle factory of A. Leitners in Latvia in 1888. A peculiar sample of the collection is a wooden bicycle produced in a VEF workshop of sports airplanes. Karlis Irbitis, well known at that time Latvian aero-constructor, constructed it using materials of airplane building. Apart from bicycles there are many different things related to cycles, cycling, societies and bicycle production.
A collection of trademarks of the biggest East-European bicycle companies is displayed at the exposition.
New finds are still added to the collection of ancient bicycles.
