Western North Carolina’s premier museum and tourism attraction features dozens of motorcycle-related exhibits, ranging from board track racers, hill climbing, and original paint machines to American Dirt Track racing, choppers and bobbers, and one-of-a-kind motorcycles. The museum also annually holds a motorcycle raffle, which helps them continue their mission.  This year they will draw one ticket for each restored bike.  They have a 1935 and a 1936 Harley – Davidson VL Flathead Bobber, fully restored in the Wheels Through Time restoration Shop.  This year’s drawing will be held on November 15, 2014.  

Founded by Dale Walksler in 1993, WTT has become an integral piece in discovering, maintaining, and preserving American motorcycle history. The collection houses tens of thousands of motorcycle pictures, historic memorabilia, and other motorcycle artifacts, and has been featured in hundreds of motorcycle publications, including American Iron, Cycle World, Cycle Source, and American Motorcyclist to name a few.  In 2013 Velocity TV started a TV series called “What’s In The Barn” with Dale Walksler & his son Matt showing how they travel & wind up with all these motorcycles collecting dust in barns across our country.  In June 2014 they are starting a new season of “What’s In The Barn” so make sure you tune in for this second season with Dale & Matt walksler bring very old bikes back to life to be viewed at their museum in NC.  

 

One of the cars on view is the 1949 Veritas car which was acquired by Dale at auction after being secluded for many years in the late Lee Hartung collection.  This has to be one of the best motorcycle museums around & if you are ever in the area you should stop by to view what Dale walksler has collected.
