Barn-Find Classic Motorcycles

The new Buzz phrase in the Classic Motorcycle world is "Barn Find".

A "Barn Find" bike is a classic motorcycle that is discovered abandoned, usually in a derelict condition. The term comes from its tendency to be discovered in rarely frequented places such as barns.

Many of the buyers of barn finds tend to be motorcycle collectors and they offer to buy the motorcycle so as to clean it, fix it, and in many cases fully restore it. Barn find classic motorcycles are a popular purchase both in unrestored and fully restored conditions and have reached high prices at motorcycle auctions worldwide.

A genuine "Barn Find" is the fantasy find of many a classic motorcycle collector!
