Description - The Vincent in the Barn by Tom Cotter

Its every motorcyclists dream. A friend or acquaintance says, You know, theres an old bike thats been sitting in this garage for years. The hunt is on. And rather than the usual worthless Hondazukimaha pile of hopeless oxidation, at the back of that barn you find a genuine classic, the motorcycle collectors dream. The Vincent in the Barn tells forty such stories--tales of motorcycle hunting dreams come true. From Ducatis in basements to Vincents abandoned in sheds, Harleys in barns to Brit bikes moldering behind urban garages, these are the stories that fuel every motorcyclists fantasies. The only difference? Theyre true. See Tom Cotter, author of Motorbooks In the Barn series, interviewed by Jay Leno on JayLenosGarage.com:
