Do you ever wonder where these old motorcycles come from? Have you ever been curious about what lay beneath that collapsed barn back in the woods on your favorite country road. Or better yet, do you know about a neighbor, a relative, or a friend who has been hoarding old cars and bike rusting away in an old shed?
“What’s in the Barn?” on Velocity TV takes viewers on a quest that criss-crosses America as museum curator Dale Walksler scours barns, buildings, and other unusual places, digging through yesterday’s junk in search of motorcycle and automotive treasure! Walksler has spent his life hunting for long since forgotten gems, uncovering unique history in the most extraordinary places. As his passion grew, so did his collection, eventually evolving into the world class Wheels Through Time Museum. Season Two of the hit series starring Dale and his son Matt is airing around the world throughout 2014.
For 2014, Wheels Through Time has brought together many of the rarest finds from Season 1 & 2 of “What’s In the Barn?” in a unique feature exhibit located in the museum’s main gallery. Housing over a dozen historic motorcycles and unique pieces of motorcycle Americana, the exhibit displays many of the rare, once-in-a-lifetime finds uncovered during Dale’s travels across the Unite States. Inside this new exhibit, you can learn the stories of who rode them, raced them, bought them and sold them…. and of course, the stories of how they were found!
Learn about the story of racer builder and driver, Dick Green, and how his legacy will be carried on at Wheels Through Time. See and hear the Air Force Harley’s that Dale uncovered in a dirt floor garage in rural Arkansas. Envision yourself on one of the 100-year old racing bikes used at the Barber Race of the Century and get up close and personal with Dale’s Dodge City find!
The exhibit showcasing barn-finds from Season 1 & 2 will run through May of 2015.
