An artickle we have find on the webside from 2008:

„Think of any inanimate object, and there’s bound to be a mad passionate collector of it tucked away in the suburbs of Japan somewhere. Shiro Yagami needs an entire building for his collection, as his wife won’t have any of it in the house.

Mr Yagami is a bicycle fanatic of the most extreme persuasion. He’s run the Yagami Corporation for around 50 years, importing bicycle parts from all over the world, particularly Europe and America. Gradually his growing collection demanded it’s own space, and so the Cycle Gallery Yagami Bicycle Museum was created. His collection contains around 200 of some of the more amazing two-wheeled machines, plus bike paraphernalia, from all over the world, mostly gifts from a huge accumulation of friends.

Some of the most impressive displays are the vintage bikes dating from the early 1800s. A single-wheel monster bike that is one of only two in the world, and the 1950s classic American bicycles, which look like futurist two wheeled versions of Cadillacs or Mustangs. There are also posters and prints of bike-related artwork, and a library of books and magazines, some hundreds of years old and worth thousands of dollars, in mint condition. Mr Yagami is only too happy to walk you through the collection and explain with childlike enthusiasm the various bikes and bike bits. Having traveled extensively to places like Australia and the US in pursuit of elusive bicycles and parts, his English is really something, so you shouldn’t have any problems asking questions about the displays.“

Asahi Chang´s collection, Taipei - Taiwan

Taipei, home to 2.7 million people and the capital of Taiwan, has a rather large bicycle secret hidden among the tight streets and winding alleyways. It can be best described as an unbelievable, jaw dropping treasure trove. The private collection of Asahi Chang contains more than 600 professional track and road bikes. It is the largest of it’s kind in the world, unavailable for public viewing. The location is a very well kept secret. We were lucky enough to have a peek inside the collection that has been nick named, “单车书房” – Bicycle Heaven.

Asahi Chang is an ex-professional Taiwanese track and road racer who started collecting bikes in 1976. He first fell in love with track bikes while he was studying in Japan. Living there for five years allowed him to explore true track culture and buy his first build, an original SILK steel track bike from the early 1970s. He always keeps it to hand. The majority of Asahi’s collection dates between 1968 and 1988, which he describes as ‘The Golden Age’ of bicycles. This was a time before carbon, before the steel frame assembly line, where hand made steel frames were built by only the most skilled builders.
