Legendary former Isle of Man TT racer Geoff Duke has officially opened the National Motorcycle Museum - for the second time.
The 82-year-old - who first opened the venue in Bickenhill, near Solihull, in 1984 - returned to the site to mark its reopening after a devastating fire which damaged more than 400 exhibits.
The museum was reduced to a burned-out shell and millions of pounds worth of priceless bikes were lost forever following the blaze, which was caused by a discarded cigarette.
Mr Duke cut the ribbon to mark the official reopening. The low-key ceremony was followed by a dinner laid on by museum owner Roy Richards to thank staff for their hard work.
The museum houses 650 machines and it hopes that on-going repairs to firedamaged bikes will boost the total on to display to 800.
