Driving down a country road, a flash of chrome catches your eye as you pass an old farmstead. Next time you roll by, you slow down and focus on a shed behind the house. Could that be? Good lord, it is! Hard on the brakes, quick reverse, and pull in the drive. Yep, it's a vintage Triumph Bonneville peering forlornly from beneath a tattered cover. You've just begun the journey that fuels the dreams of every motorcycle collector: the lost machine discovered. The Harley in the Barn offers 40-plus tales of lost Nortons, hidden Hondas, dormant Indians, and busted BSAs, all squirreled away but found by lucky collectors. Author Tom Cotter is t only a barn-find master, he's also master of discovering the collectors with the best stories and the most outlandish finds. If you can't pass a padlocked garage without wondering if there's a great old bike stashed inside, this is your book.
