  • Barber Museum

    Visited the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum earlier this week. Spent the entire day in the museum.
    This was on my bucket list for a number of years and was definitely worth the drive from PA to Al and back.
    The Barber collection is fabulous, and the facility is first class.
    Many Hondas in the collection but I did not see a Hawk.

      My wife and I visited several years back. It wasn't exactly her cup-o-tea, so I rushed thru (3-hrs) and it whet my appetite for more. Gotta get another trip on the radar...
      This forum is entirely dedicated to wasting time and money modifying a slow motorcycle. - joel

      Nothing like a project to keep you busy, slowly draining funds out of the wallet! - spacetiger

      Our Hawks have all the power any mature, sensible rider can use on any street or highway without carrying around excessively unnecessary big-bore weight and power - squirrelman

      Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6

        I was there before it was doubled in size and plan to be back. The old museum housed 20% of Georges collection, now holds 40%. There are permanent bikes and then they rotate bikes in and out. The coolest part is all bikes are ready to ride and he selects them to take out and ride. They just need to be filled with fluids and have a battery(if needed) and he goes on the track. He's a super nice guy, I volunteer at the vintage days and every time I have he comes around and shakes the hands and personally thanks all of us.
