Books Info:

The Vincent in the Barn free pdf Every motorcyclist dreams of that magic moment when a friend or acquaintance says, "You know, I know where there's this old bike that's been sitting at the back of this garage for years." With those momentous words the hunt is launched. Too often the machine revealed is a worthless Hondazukimaha pile of hopeless oxidation, but sometimes, just sometimes, it's a collector's dream- a genuine classic motorcycle. Author Tom Cotter has scoured the motorcycle collector ranks to find the best "barn find" tales. From well-known collectors like Dale Walksler (Wheels Through Time Museum) and "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno, to motorjournalist Ken Gross, to lucky bike freaks you've never heard of but whose finds you will envy- theirs are the stories that keep the barn-find dream alive. "The Vincent in the Barn" offers 40 stories of motorcycle-hunting dreams come true. From Ducatis in basements to Vincents piled in sheds, Harleys in barns to Brit bikes moldering behind urban garages, these are the stories that fuel every motorcyclist's moto-fantasies. "Cycle World "magazine tells readers, "You never know what you might find in a barn, back of a garage or under a dusty tarp. . .Tom Cotter continues his entertaining search for motorized treasure." "Motorcycle Classics" magazine calls it ." . .a thoroughly fun romp through a corner of the hobby most of us wish we inhabited - and swear we someday will."
