Barber is really incredible. Not many dirt bikes though.
They have a barn fresh Hodaka with all the 'trick' mods on it. A perfect DT1.

Vesco's streamliner brings back childhood memories. I saw it 30+ years ago in Houston. Only three really big names from the era were nice to a little boy with lots of questions. Don Vesco was one of them.

Dirt Bikes

As far as I can remember, Tim Ferry's Yamaha, an HD military bike and dirt tracker are the only dirt bikes I saw. Hopefully, they will have some more on display when I return.

The Barber is completely awesome! I had no idea it would be so cool. Here's a few of my pics. The first is the view when you walk in, it was overwhelming.

I love Barber and hope to go back again soon. I heard one guy say that almost all of the bikes are in running order and if they put a battery and fluids back in, most can be running in short order!!!

Barber museum

Actually we have a good selection of off road bikes, m/x, trials, enduro etc. but we are running out of room to display them. Those darn Lotus just take up too much space!

I went to Barber to do a track day and didn't even know the museum was there till I showed up. Once I saw it I told the wife we were spending another day in Leeds! That place is great!

Sounds like there is a little more around there now...when we went the only hotel was at the end of the road...I had to fight the cockroaches for my pillow!

Tell Mr. Barber to get busy and build another facility for the cars.
I'll come see that one too. A Lotus and Porsche museum maybe...hmmmm.

We had a great time at your museum but a little bummed we couldn't get downstairs to see the shop and the Porsches.

Thanks for sharing so many great pictures.

I have been meaning to get there for years but it hasn't happened.

This is a great reminder.

I rode solo 520 miles round trip on a rainy/ drizzly at best day to Orlando when the Art of the Motorcycle display was there and even that was worth it.

This is way better though. Of course there was a Britten at the AOM display and that was more than half of the reason I went through the trouble (rainy boring turnpike/ I-95 ride) that day.

Here is a link to the album from that day- sorry, I know it SHOULD be a SmugMug account.

Sorry

The pics will be back the 27th.
I put too many on this month and exceeded my bandwidth.

I visited art of the motorcycle in Memphis on the way home from Barber a few years ago. Barber was much better.
One of my visits Brian Slark came up and said hi. Nice to meet someone who played such a role in the motorcycle industry and with so much knowledge.

Heaven

Wow! The Barber Museum looks like my own personal heaven, definately have to visit there the next time I go stateside.

Thanks for sharing the pics, you've made me a very envious person.

Can't count how many BSA's, Nortons, Triumphs and other British bikes the museum holds. It's amazing.
