What’s In The Barn. The New TV Series Premieres Tonight Tuesday, June 18 at 10.30 PM ET/PT

Wheels-Through-Time-Museum1What’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.

Wheels-Through-Time-Museum2In 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.

Future “What’s In The Barn” Episodes Include (Not a Full List):

“100 Year Old Harley”
World Premieres Tuesday, July 2 at 10 PM ET/PT
For much of Dale’s life he has heard the tale of the one family-owned, unaltered, barn kept, 100 year old Harley. Two weeks before Christmas he’s hired to dig the bike out of the family barn and bring it back to Wheels Through Time to prep for auction in early January. There’s no doubt Dale wants the bike but the family thinks they can get more from an active bidding process. Dale works straight through the holidays to get ready, but the real surprise comes when he becomes an active and aggressive bidder at auction.

“The Hidden Hillclimbers”
World Premieres Tuesday, July 9 at 10 PM ET/PT
The 85 year-old owner of Metropolitan Motors, which closed its doors in the ‘70s, is fed up with the pressure of protecting one of the world’s most valuable stashes of all Italian cycle parts. With pallets stacked nearly to the ceilings, and no recognizable organization or labeling system, he doesn’t have the energy or man power to sort and market the collection of parts, bikes and rare dealer signs.

    Great family television! :)

  3. 3 Kirk Perry Jun 18th, 2013 at 9:47 am

    But the Velocity TV channel? :p …… we must be off the grid.

  4. 4 Rodent Jun 18th, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Put the show on a major channel!

  5. 5 Hugh G Jun 18th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Hey dummies, get a real cable service and you might get Velocity Channel. I get it on U-Verse and its great…better than Speed ever was… lots of good auto-related shows, and now some good moto shows as well. Atleast so far, it hasn’t caved in started airing the stupid white trash dumbed down shows like Speed hasn’t gotten into.

    Really like Cafe Racer TV and it’s good see another bike-themed show on the channel. Looks like a winner.

    The Velocity Channel is my refuge during those long, harsh Wisconsin winters. Beats Speed hands down…

    Awesome – will have to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up Cyril

    Speedvision
    Now wa-wa-wait a minute. What happened to SpeedVision and Dave Despain and the gang? Their old channel is now the “shopping channel” for cry-yi.

    “Hey dummies, get a real cable service and you might get Velocity Channel.”

    Man we already got CoxCable bleedin’ us for $100. a month… get only one (1) of our (2) TVs activated and the “pop” from $55. to $99.99 was for the Hallmark Channel that we rarely watch, but “just had to have for “family” entertainment!.. :( :( boo-hoo”, she said.
    So we have 1,000 channels, but not Velocity Channel and I’m done with it.

    Somebody take the show mainstream next season. Maybe a YouTube highlight. Something for the po’ folk.

  9. 9 Rodent Jun 18th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    Have no fear, the whole series will be available in a DVD boxed set at end of season, we hope.

    I’m really digging the lineup Velocity is putting together. It’s already gotten itself promoted to one of the background channels around the house on the weekend. Those are the channels that stay on while tinkering around the house because each show is interesting. I’ll have to set the DVR tonight – got stuff to do.

    For DirecTV customers, Velocity in on channel 281.

  11. 11 Rodent Jun 18th, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    Velocity is a whole own subspecies of Discovery

  12. 12 Kirk Perry Jun 18th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I, uh….well, actually picked up the phone and called CoxCable® and having the Hallmark Channel is the reason we are able to see “What’s In the Barn” which is on channel 1735 and – what else have we been missing all our CoxCable lives?
    #1735 who’d have known?

  13. 13 Zipper Jun 18th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Great Guy, awesome museum. Can’t get velocity in my area unless you have a High Def. TV and service. I have seen Velocity at other places and it’s way better than Speed ever was. ..Z

  14. 14 Craig Jun 18th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Wheels through time is definitely a must stop if you are in North Carolina. I stopped in at the beginning of this year and the place was amazing. It exceeded my expectations by tenfold and I can’t wait to go back. It is hard to explain how amazing this museum is you just have to see it. If you have been thinking about going just go, you won’t regret it. Maybe you will get a sidecar ride -craig

    Missed it. How was it?

  16. 16 Cris Sommer Simmons Jun 19th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    It was awesome!

  17. 17 Vision Jun 19th, 2013 at 11:41 am

    I get Velocity with basic cable from Xfinity, in reg and HD. Great stuff, way better than Speed channel. They’re airing new episodes of Overhaulin’, my favorite show ever! (well, next to Biker Build-off) So now we have What’s in the Barn, and then Zach Ness’ new TV show on Nat Geo premiering in August. finally some good motorcycle TV after a long drought!

  18. 18 Larry Kennedy Jun 19th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Looks like it could be a good show, too bad my copy of the CHBlog didn’t get here till 19JUN13. Guess I’ll check it out next week.

  19. 19 Martin Twofeather Jun 19th, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    They are two of the best at what they do so it should be a great show….

  20. 20 Blackmax Jun 20th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Congrats on the show !!!
    Finally a cycle based show worth watching !!!!!

  21. 21 bean're Jun 24th, 2013 at 8:44 am

    A great show with a great family in it!

  22. 22 Mike Corbin.com Jun 24th, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Dale is the best of the best, now that is “motorcycles on TV “

  23. 23 nicker Jun 26th, 2013 at 5:28 am

    Certainly was entertaining ……….
    But, attempting to “price” the HD Pea-shooter by scrap weight value…… ???
    Anyway, Will be looking forward to the next show.

    RE:
    “….85 year-old owner of Metropolitan Motors, which closed its doors in the ‘70s…”

    Would that be “Cosmopolitan Motors”…..???
    As in:

    Sep 09, 2012 10:14 am
    We will have the “giant” internet auction of the Cosmo inventory (about 35
    tractor trailer loads, 600 pallets) starting in October and I am almost
    sure there are some 125 Guzzi parts here because we traded some bikes with
    my cousin Joe Berliner in the 60’s or 70’s.

    Be still my heart…..
    Thought that stuff was all gone.
    Sure could use a Benelli “egg motor” (either size).
