The TR6R 650cc twin ridden by Steve McQueen in the 1963 film, The Great Escape, is the centrepiece of the new Triumph museum at their Hinckley factory in the UK.
The £4million ($A6.75m) “museum” is called a “factory visitor centre” and it will be open to the public for free from November 1.
Triumph brand manager Miles Perkins says the “most famous movie Triumph of all time” ridden by McQueen has been returned to the exact specification of 1962 and retains 95% of the original parts.
After its starring role, the bike was sold to a farmer and used to herd cows before years spent stored in a barn.
“Elsewhere, the two-wheeled stars from road, track and screen include the very first Triumph No1 from 1902, the Speed Triple ridden by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2 and the latest race engine prototype for the 2019 Moto2TM championship.”
The museum will be open five days a week with guided tours for £15 ($A25).
