The Horton Collection is one of the world’s largest collections of bicycle racing memorabilia. Over the course of twenty-five years Shelly and Brett Horton have amassed an unprecedented collection of more than 15,000 objects including trophies, race worn jerseys, vintage posters, and other ephemera. Additionally, the collection houses more than 350,000 original vintage photographs and negatives spanning the late 1800s through the 1970s. Their passion for the sport and its legacy have led them to the world’s greatest races, and many of the sport’s legends have entrusted their own treasures to the Horton Collection. The Hortons live in San Francisco, California.
At NAHBS, the Horton Collection will be displaying two custom mountain bikes; Brett’s new bike built by the legendary Steve Potts along side his ten year old son Trevor’s very special 24″ wheel titanium mountain bike. The Horton’s will be offering their newest Eddy Merckx limited edition, personally signed lithographs at special NHABS attendee pricing along with a new series of limited edition small prints of some of the iconic images from their personal collection. Finally, Brett & Shelly will be available to sign copies of their latest book Shoulder to Shoulder along with limited available copies of last years best seller Goggles & Dust.
