You've seen the popular shows on TV like American Pickers and American Restoration, well this is nothing like that. Instead of 40 minutes of jump cuts, short quips, and stupid pranks this web series will peel off the reality show layers and get down to what they don't show you. This will be the REALITY of how much work goes into the finished products that they magically reveal at the end of the show. Welcome to Barn Fresh, a motorcycle restoration on Blip.tv. Watch as a 1970 Kawasaki F5 350cc BigHorn gets restored from the ground up. If your more performance oriented check out "The F9 Project" turning an F9 350cc Big Horn into a performance based motocross racer.
Barn Fresh is a term used to describe a motorcycle or car found in the proverbial barn sitting untouched for many years. Barn Fresh the video series follows Jon "The Junk Man" as I restore a vintage motorcycle from the ground up. Barn Fresh should delight motorcycle riders young and old as it shows some interesting tips and tricks along the way that everyone can use. The restoration video series contains episodes showing the major aspects of tackling a ground up restoration in plain simple terms. In these videos I will show the the intricacies of each process throughout the project so the viewer can make an informed decision if a restoration project is in deed something they can accomplish.
Check back from time to time as pictures, bike specific info and "behind the scenes stuff will also be posted.
