Velocity Unveils Classic Motorcycle Americana on the Original Series "WHAT'S IN THE BARN?"

-- WHAT'S IN THE BARN? World Premieres Tuesday, June 25 at 10 PM ET/PT--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Velocity is taking viewers inside the barns and backyards of America on the hunt for exceptional, classic motorcycles in the all-new series WHAT'S IN THE BARN? premiering Tuesday, June 25 at 10 PM ET/PT.

WHAT'S IN THE BARN? host Dale Walksler lends his expert eye-Dale is curator of the Wheels Through Time museum-and his enthusiasm for automotive Americana as he searches sheds, barns, storehouses and hangers across the U.S. for vintage motorcycles. Dale knows that what might appear to be yesterday's junk can be brought back to life as today's automotive treasures.

In the debut episode, Dale and his son Matt get a vague tip from a museum visitor who claims he saw a rare peashooter motorcycle at an army surplus warehouse a few miles from Wheels Through Time. Dale can't imagine how an antique motorcycle could find its way into a building that's rumored to hold 500,000 grenade canisters. What he also doesn't know is that this simple 10 mile drive will detour him all the way to rural Pennsylvania and New Jersey. There he will be tempted to purchase two of the largest collections of new and used motorcycle parts in the United States.

WHAT'S IN THE BARN? airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET/PT beginning June 25 only on Velocity.

Dale Walksler has been uncovering motorcycle history in the most unusual and extraordinary places for years. His passion is what has driven his collection, and that collection has evolved into the motorcycle paradise that is the Wheels Through Time Museum. Located in Maggie Valley, N.C., Wheels Through Time features more than 300 of America's rarest classic motorcycles, and the collection continues growing thanks to Dale's undying passion for historic automotive machines.

Future WHAT'S IN THE BARN? Episodes Include (Not a Full List):

"100 Year Old Harley" World Premieres Tuesday, July 2 at 10 PM ET/PT For much of Dale's life he has heard the tale of the one family-owned, unaltered, barn kept, 100 year old Harley. Two weeks before Christmas he's hired to dig the bike out of the family barn and bring it back to Wheels Through Time to prep for auction in early January. There's no doubt Dale wants the bike but the family thinks they can get more from an active bidding process. Dale works straight through the holidays to get ready, but the real surprise comes when he becomes an active and aggressive bidder at auction.

"The Hidden Hillclimbers" World Premieres Tuesday, July 9 at 10 PM ET/PT The 85 year-old owner of Metropolitan Motors, which closed its doors in the '70s, is fed up with the pressure of protecting one of the world's most valuable stashes of all Italian cycle parts. With pallets stacked nearly to the ceilings, and no recognizable organization or labeling system, he doesn't have the energy or man power to sort and market the collection of parts, bikes and rare dealer signs. Worried that he'll have to sell for scrap, he contacted Dale and asked for help. The parts value could exceed ten million dollars. It will take cash, years to inventory, price and market, and over 12 semis to transport, but it's a deal Dale just can't walk away from.
