rebuilding history

 

Where it all began

I grew up around an appreciation for old stuff.

My dad collected barber chairs and crank telephones. He went as far as to buy an old hotel in coastal Alaska just to pull the valuable items and hold on to them and make sure they didn't get destroyed. And then he destroyed the hotel and salvaged the copper and other metals. 

The guy has a crippling foresight when it comes to preserving the past. He's been horse-trading and making deals for as long as I can remember, and has all kinds of cool collectible stuff to show for it. He actually had to purchase an adjacent parcel of land to accommodate his collections. But he's really not into restoring any of it; he secures the pieces, which in his mind keeps it from getting demolished.

  Pre 1980 Motorcycle Motorcycles are fantastic in all conditions.  What might look insignificant in your shed might have a great story behind it.  If you or someone you know has an old motorcycle they want to see daylight again, please contact me here!  I’d love to hear about the bike and the person behind it.
