On the next episode of Velocity’s WHAT’S IN THE BARN?, premiering Tuesday, June 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, host Dale Walksler goes on the hunt for a WWII military bike to help
raise funds and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project in conjunction with The Home Depot Foundation. Dale’s search takes him on a 1400 mile round-trip journey to Harrison, Arkansas, where he finds two extremely rare motorcycles with a unique military history. The bikes were originally made by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company for the U.S. Navy around 1942 and were then likely re-commissioned by Harley-Davidson around 1946 for the newly forming U.S. Air Force.
After nearly five decades in an Arkansas garage, Dale moves the bikes to his museum to preserve a piece of American history. He and his son Matt build a replica WWII-era U.S. Air Force motorcycle from new old stock parts to help raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project in conjunction with The Home Depot Foundation.
America’s barns and backyards are filled with treasures of motorcycling history and icons of American industry, two-wheeled relics that provide a window into our deep love of engines, speed and the beauty of the open road. In each episode of WHAT’S IN THE BARN?, Dale Walksler and his son Matt bring audiences to the furthest reaches of the U.S. on a mission to find hidden treasures and artifacts of America’s motorcycling past.
