What’s In The Barn is a TV Series on Velocity Channel about vintage motorcycles starring Dale Walksler. The show is taking viewers inside the barns and backyards of America on the hunt for exceptional, classic motorcycles. Host Dale Walksler lends his expert eye (Dale is curator of the Wheels Through Time museum) and his enthusiasm for automotive Americana as he searches sheds, barns, storehouses and hangers across the U.S. for vintage motorcycles. Dale knows that what might appear to be yesterday’s junk can be brought back to life as today’s automotive treasures.
In the debut episode, Dale and his son Matt get a vague tip from a museum visitor who claims he saw a rare peashooter motorcycle at an army surplus warehouse a few miles from Wheels Through Time. Dale can’t imagine how an antique motorcycle could find its way into a building that’s rumored to hold 500,000 grenade canisters. What he also doesn’t know is that this simple 10 mile drive will detour him all the way to rural Pennsylvania and New Jersey. There he will be tempted to purchase two of the largest collections of new and used motorcycle parts in the United States.
