It`s great when a 65 year old can still excite

Moto Guzzi Airone in Carmen Red - `art in engineering`

Can a pretty Italian motorbike be allowed into the house under the banner of art? "Yes!" says Shepherd. "Push the boundaries! Break all the rules!"

Brand-new UK art gallery MotoGalleria, http://www.motogalleria.com is selling some of Italy's most beautiful motorcycles as decorative works of art. Owner Robin Shepherd says, "We are the only gallery in the world offering stylish, sexy and colourful classic Italian motorbikes as decorative art - aimed at the interior designer, window dresser and the savvy man-woman cave owner rather than the motorcycle enthusiast."

MotoGalleria is, coincidentally, spliced onto the side of BBC's Top Gear studio and just 35 miles south of London on an old Second World War airfield.

Can a pretty Italian motorbike be allowed into the house under the banner of art? "Yes!" says Shepherd. "Push the boundaries! Break all the rules!"

In the 1950s and 1960s most Brits were supping cups of tea, drinking flat beer and eating fish and chips. Their motorbikes were big, black and noisy.

At the same time the Italians were enjoying a rich variety of coffees and fine wine and eating foods that we eventually came to appreciate. And their motorcycles were chic, fashionable and elegant, built with a passion for the aesthetic and a flair for functional art.

MotoGalleria’s stunning bikes capture the "art in engineering" of this golden era and its development into the beautiful forms that today, more than ever, excite and engage, evoking emotion and firing the imagination.

The gallery dares it's customers to be different and look beyond what's perceived as traditional art by bringing a piece of 'living sculpture' into their home, office, foyer, man cave - anywhere it can be displayed, appreciated and adored.
