Professor Géza Kaáli Nagy’s long-standing dream has finally come true: the founder of the former Kaáli Institute has created Hungary’s largest and most diverse vehicle collection, which is open to the public as well.
The museum in Dörgicse houses the world’s largest collection of motorcycles manufactured in Hungary. A couple of the items that visitors can admire here: Méray 1000, WM Csepel, SHB, BM, Mátra, touring Csepels, Tünde, Panni, Berva, Danuvia, and the entire Pannónia series up to the 1975 P12 model. The collection also includes such rarities as the Pannónia MC62 or the Danuvia DMC125.
In addition, famous motorcycles like the 100-year-old Henderson DeLuxe and the Indian PowerPlus are also on display. The BSA Empire Star (1936), with which Nobel Prize winner Hungarian scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi travelled across half of Europe, has also been preserved in its original condition. Just to mention a few other iconic bikes that can be visited here: Zündapp KS600, NSU 601 TS, Matchless J Sport, Moto Guzzi Falcone Sport, Triumph Ricardo, Scott Super Squirrel, Imperia Model H, Norton Model 18, Ariel, Red Hunter, BMW R51/3. Professor Kaáli has also brought home from the US his Harley-Davidson FXRX Low Rider (1987), which has barely even had a shakedown yet.
The collection also features several prominent representatives of the motorbike-manufacturing industries of former socialist countries as well as the family bikes that belonged to the professor’s father. Naturally, archival family photos can be viewed on several of the walls next to the vehicles themselves.
