Vote for your favorite bikes in the world’s largest motorcycle museum!
The Barber Vintage Festival is one of the USA’s premier vintage motorcycle events, hosted every October at the 880-acre Barber Motorsports Park outside Birmingham, Alabama — a complex designed with the help of motorsport legends John Surtees and Dan Gurney. While the festival and swap meet were canceled this year due to C-19, we were thrilled to learn that the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) road race, cross country, and trials events would still be taking place. We raced in the cross country event on Saturday, then visited the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum on Sunday.
The museum got its start in 1988, displaying the private motorcycle collection of George Barber — the third-generation owner of Barber Dairies. Today, the five-story, 144,000 square-foot museum is home to more than 1600 motorcycles and race cars, holding the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest motorcycle museum. It is, in a word, Valhalla for motorcycles. This was our first trip, and we were simply staggered at what we found.
Just for fun, we decided to let you, our readers, vote for your three favorite bikes from the collection. Each reader gets three votes, and the winner will be announced on the evening of Sunday, October 25!
