For our rally goers, the Barber is offering a special "behind the scenes" tour. They will touch on technique and philosophy behind the preservation/restoration process with an explanation on how they select a bike for restoration vs preservation.The Barber will also do a case study of what current project is on the table in the restoration department at the time of our visit. Cars and motorcycles will be be covered.

The tour sounds great. I'm defiantly signing up when I arrive.
