Richardsons Harley Davidson Museum and Cafe

Richardsons Harley-Davidson Museum and Café showcases motorcycle memorabilia dating back to 1940 in Westbury, Tasmania.
Simon Hrycyszyn (Richardson) is the driving force behind the museum and Tasmania’s oldest Harley-Davidson dealership. The museum contains interesting treasure including a 1900s pedal bike with a plate that reads ‘A.G. Flannery-Harley-Gallion Co,’ an extremely rare piece. Wander through the museum and enjoy stepping back in time with a 1940 ex Army Indian Scout and two J-model Harley-Davidsons. Donations from enthusiasts have assisted in the expansion of the museum. Learn about the history of the property, as Simon began in a workshop beneath his father’s house repairing motorcycles, before moving to a simple tin shed and later constructing the two-story building it is today. The building itself is worth a look, made primarily from recycled materials. The pre-owned parts section is built from Harley-Davidson bike crates, the flooring from telegraph poles and structural beams from wharf pylons. While you are in Westbury, wander through the quaint village, established in the 1820s as a garrison town. Visit the White House Museum, Westbury Maze and Pearn’s world famous Steam World.
Westbury is an easy 20-minute drive from Launceston (35 kilometres/22 miles).
