Reviews

"The Vincent in the Barn is a worthwhile and enjoyable read for anyone who has an interest in the old, the rare, the odd, or even just motorcycle history in general. The stand-alone nature of its stories--some of which are laugh out loud funny-- make it an easy book to pick up and put down at random, even if one should really give these tales some undivided attention." - Friction Zone
"Here's a rough piece of fiction from a Bikernet reader. Although his prose are scrambled his story comes across. It's a classic, and if you love stories of found antique motorcycles, you need to pick up this new book from Motorbooks. It's full of true stories of classic vintage motorcycle discoveries. Some I know of personally, because I know the current owners. If any book causes you to search all the barns in your neighborhood, this is it."-- BikerNet.com
"I haven't completely finished the book yet but I can tell you for sure that if you love stories like this you'll love this book. I highly recommend it." - MyBikeForums.com
"The Vincent in the Barn" is a delight. Most of the stories are only a few pages long and read like high octane archaeological thrillers...kind of like "Indiana Jones meets the World's Fastest Indian." Some of the writing is priceless. "The Vincent in the Barn" truly does contain "Great Stories of Motorcycle Archaeology." It rates four out of five lug nuts and is available at SPEEDtv.com, Keyword "Books." I'm really starting to miss my 1972 650cc Yamaha I rode in college." - SpeedTV.com
"...a thoroughly fun romp through a corner of the hobby most of us wish we inhabited - and swear we someday will." - Motorcycle Classics

"From Ducati's in basements to Vincent's in sheds, here are dozens of stories and accompanying images of the dream coming true! Brilliant!" - Classic Bike Guide (UK) "It's no mystery that there are those among us that relish the hunt as much, if not more, than the actual ownership of rare and antique motorcycles. Therefore, if you're a regular reader of this publication, you'll likely enjoy THE VINCENT IN THE BARN--GREAT STORIES OF MOTORCYCLE ARCHAEOLOGY by Tom Cotter. The true tales here cover everything from amazing finds across the street to the other side of the globe. Embedded in the stories one can glean tips and techniques used by professional vehicle hunters. Also, one realizes that sometimes just plain dumb luck or an offhand rumor will land something very cool in the garage.I found the book an entertaining and educational read." - The Antique Motorcycle
"You never know what you might find in a barn, back of a garage or under a dusty tarp. Following his successful "The Cobra in the Barn" and "The Hemi in the Barn", author tom cotter continues his search for motorized treasure with "The Vincent in the Barn". Cotter's personal experiences are interspersed with similar stories from other noted authors." -CycleWorld
