As the riding season begins to wind to a close, and many begin to think about putting their motorcycles away for the year, the folks at Wheels Through Time are hard at work preparing for their biggest event of the season — The 2014 WTT Motorcycle Raffle Giveaway!
Its been almost a year since Wheels Through Time gave away the 1939 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead bobber to a lucky ticket-holder, and with less than 50 days until the 2014 drawing, many are anticipating a new addition to their garage by the end of the year!
This year, the museum will be giving away not one, but TWO genuine American classics as the Grand Prizes of their annual motorcycle giveaway – 1935 and 1936 Harley-Davidson VL Flathead bobbers! Specially built in the Wheels Through Time Restoration Shop, these machines have been painstakingly brought back to life by museum curator and founder, Dale Walksler, and on November 15th will both become a part of history when the 12th Annual Raffle Drawing decides their new homes.

As the summer of 2014 winds to a close, and many area businesses and attractions being to prepare for another busy leaf season in Western NC, Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC is picking up steam like never before. Since opening for the year in late-March, the museum has hosted over 110,000 visitors making 2014 its busiest season to date. And it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon! With the busiest months just around the corner, the all-American transportation museum is poised to add to what has already been a record year.
Museum staff credits part of the museum’s success in 2014 to a very successful second season of Velocity’s hit television series “What’s In The Barn?”, which follows museum curator Dale Walksler and his son Matt across the country in search of motorcycle history in unusual places. Season one aired in June of 2013 and was met with rave reviews from viewers. Season two began in early June of 2014, and since, the museum has been getting busier by the week. The show can be seen in over 60 million homes in the U.S. and dozens of countries around the world.
