Recently, I paid a visit to an amazing place: Birmingham’s Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. I was there for a story for Southern Automotive Alliance magazine, and had the privilege of being shown around by the man behind the world’s largest motorcycle museum – George Barber.
Before I got to explore the world-class race track and park surrounding the museum with Barber, I was able to spend an afternoon having my mind blown by the astounding collection of motorcycles in his one-of-a-kind facility. I took a ton of pictures. Most of them did not get used in the magazine story, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking at them in the slideshow here. After you read my story in SAAM, maybe you’ll want to visit the museum yourself. I can promise you that my pictures don’t fully do it justice.
