I just got a call from a friend of mine from the hotrod world. He told me of a "barnfind" car he went to go buy. The pictures were of a mid forties lakes style model A hotrod. Period perfect. Just pulled out of the shed after a almost 60 year nap. He wanted it in the worst way. I dont blame him, me too. When he got there. The car was just as he had seen in the pics. It was not until money changed hands and it was loaded on the trailer that he had a bomb dropped on him. The car was less than a year old. Built to look like an old hotrod. All the right patiena and war wounds. The works. It was a fake.
This brings me to my point. How do the motorcycle groups feel about "NOS" ( new old style) builds. There are some very talented people out there that car build and make a new bike look old. Just like a true barn find. In the car world, If its known that its new up front, its usually accepted. I am not talking rat rods or rat bikes. I am talking true looking " original " bikes.
Just wanted to know the feelings here. We all love the barnfinds. How about new barn posers? Just asking please dont shoot me.
