Antiques Roadshow Visits Sturgis Motorcycle Museum
While on location in the Black Hills of South Dakota, PBS’s Antiques Roadshow stopped by the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum to film a segment on motorcycle toys. In the segment host Mark L. Walberg talks with vintage toy expert Noel Barrett about various American-made, antique, cast iron motorcycle toys.
Barrett shares the history of these early toys, some tips about how one might tell a reproduction from the real thing, and offers his valuation on several highlighted examples. Walberg also takes a ride on a vintage Harley-Davidson Servi-Car. Additional footage not seen in the show will be posted on the Antiques Roadshow website once the episode has aired.
The segment is to premiere on PBS stations nationwide Monday, April 29th at 8pm/7pm Central. Check your local listings to confirm the air date and time.
