Anyone who appreciates the fine workmanship of mechanical excellence would enjoy the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Museum.. arguably one of the finest collections of vintage motorcycles in the world.
This museum is located in Leeds, Alabama, just outside Birmingham, and nestled beautifully amongst a pine tree forest. The museum owns some 1400 motorcycles (according to its own website), with around 700 bikes on display at any given time, The 5-floor glass and steel building is reminiscent of the BMW Roundel museum in Munich.
You take an elevator to the top floor (if you’re lazy like me), then stroll through each floor’s displays, using a circular ramp/walkway to descend to the next lower floor.
Every imaginable range of motorcycle (and a number of delectable automobiles as well) are on display, from the earliest Harley, up to 10-15 year old modern bikes.
I was privileged to visit the museum recently while on a motorcycle trip from Austin to northern Tennessee.
