Farrens´ Bicycle Collection – Melbourne, Australia
Paul Farren and his wife Charlie ownes a nice private collection with 85% of the pre -1900s bicycles in Australia, and all under one roof. Thirty years of hunting them down and collecting has resulted in one of the top 10 early bike collections in the world - it includes 160 pre-1900 bicycles, some post-1900 bikes, tricycles, hobby horses, and penny farthings.
A collection of rare early machine tools assists with the restorations and rebuilds, and through the collection, the development of the bicycle and the change in its use can be seen.
Part of the collection was moved to the MOVE museum in 2023.
