HUGE Vintage off road bike auction (Online)
Jim Hoellerick’s Vintage Trail Bike Museum
CHESHIRE, MA – The longtime owner of the private Museum of Vintage Trail Bikes, Jim Hoellerich, has died at 88. He passed away on Sunday, one day after hundreds of riders attended one last open house at the hilltop museum he founded that houses 100 or so models made by such companies as OSSA, Bultaco, Penton and Yankee.
“Jim passed away only hours after the event ended,” wrote friend Paul Stannard in an email to RIDE-CT & RIDE-New England. “Jim is gone but his legacy will live on forever here in the Northeast and around the country.”
A celebration of Hoellerich’s life is planned for 11 a.m. June 25th at the farm where he started the museum more than 30 years ago. Besides old bikes, the museum has signage, vintage leathers, boots, and trophies from races past. It began with some relic OSSA models.
