The 8th Annual

Barber Vintage Festival

Presented by Triumph Dealers of North America
October 12, 13, & 14, 2012


t's less than a month away and this year's Barber Vintage Festival is even Bigger than ever before. New this year is Jerry Wood's Cyclemarket & Auction. The America's First Federal Credit Union Fan Zone is overflowing. We've added the Ace Cafe at the Ace Corner too! The motorcycle swap meet has over 250 vendors that can help you locate that last part needed or perhaps inspire you to start something new. There are special programs take place in the museum and this is one of the few times when the Restoration Level is open to visitors. Get your festival tickets, camping passes and Motorcycles by Moonlight tickets as they are all selling fast. Please check back for updates and more information.

The Vendors area has some great vendors, but for the most part it's a flea market-- a lot of junk, some reasonable and some overpriced. Ya takes your chances.

It's fun to browse, though.

It's a gold mine for the Honda crowd, that's for sure. It's like walking into a Dollar Tree store.

You're right, I didn't mean to diss the Vendors. Whereas it's gold for the Honda/UJM crowd, it is less so for the Beemer bunch.

I scored a beautiful complete 77 R100RS fairing with everything but the gauges (ie, all the mounting hardware, mirrors, glass, turn signals, windshield ect ) for about $300 from there last year. So there is some good Airhead stuff to be found, but ya gotta look for it... and have a way to get it home... lol

I wasnt there, My father called me at 6:30 in the morning from there with a:

"Hey I just found another fairing for your RS and its a 77! You want it?"
"what time is it?"
"6:30, theres another guy looking at it right now, but I got you first dibs"
"why are you calling me at this hour of the morning... wait did you say 77 RS fairing, Im awake.. what shape and how much" (the fairing on my 77 has been badly damaged and repaired several times over the years)

"Clean has every thing but the gauges and $300 sending you pics now!"
(looked at the pics)
"BUY IT!!!!!.... damn, how am I going to get it back to knoxville now?"


Spent the rest of the day trying to find find a way to get it back to home to me as my father was there on his GS.
Luckily my father ran into a friend who was there with a truck, and got him to bring the fairing back for me.

Gonna try and go myself this year, and look for parts for my latest project: 83 R80RT into cafe bike....
But this year hope to find someone going down with a truck ahead of time... lol

I couldn't find the parts there that I was looking for but I did find something I wasn't looking for. It was a brand new unused gas tank for my 1977 R75/7 project. I am sure some of you saw it. It was Havana Gold (feces brown). You don't see many of that color. I am going to do the rest of the bike the same color. My wife thinks its beautiful and she would never lie to me.

Barber vintage festival

It was awesome, scored a pair of BMW cylinders for $40 and an airbox with filter for $18, and a lot of small stuff to complete my parts bike. Got a good pair of /5 shocks for $20. Sold a bunch of stuff too. Still need a pair of fair used /5-/6 valve covers. One of my 750 cylinders had a deep rust pit in the compression area, will bore the R-60 cylinders to my good used pistons and not have to buy $600 worth of pistons. There were lots of BMW, Norton, BSA, Triumph parts and bikes and also lots of Japanese stuff. 400+ vendors, two air shows, fireworks, road racing, hare scramble, motocross, trials, awesome museum, auction. what a weekend
