Thank you for making the 2017 Vintage Festival a huge success! Friday evening’s Motorcycles by Moonlight event in the museum’s Grand Atrium kicked off the three-day weekend festival with a plated dinner, proceeds benefiting the not-for-profit Barber Museum. The silent auction included valuable motorcycle leathers, art, sculptures, and big-ticket items provided by generous donors. After the silent auction closed, the live auction saw active bidding on a painting artist Bill Patterson created in two hours onstage during the event, as well as the official 13th Annual Barber Vintage Festival art painted by Anne Hicks. Some lucky auction winners got to take the “rides of their lives” in parade laps on the track on Saturday, where they rode as passengers in the museum’s Radical SR3 Supersport and Lotus 2-Eleven Roadster. A special thank you to our Grand Marshal, Wes Cooley, for his participation.
We are excited to announce that Colin Seeley will be our Grand Marshal for this year's Vintage Festival! Be sure to save the date for the 2018 Motorcycles by Moonlight Event, on Friday, October 5th! Details will be added to this site as they become available, so check back often!
The Barber Museum is honored to feature motorsports legend Colin Seeley at this year’s Motorcycles by Moonlight event on the evening of October 5. Seeley is Grand Marshal of the 14th Annual Barber Vintage Festival, October 5-7.
Seeley’s lifetime in motorsports is brimming with special accomplishments and contributions. Over the past 60 years, he’s made his mark as a motorcycle dealer, motorcycle racer, sidecar racer, chassis designer, race team manager, and philanthropist.
Considered one of the best motorcycle frame designers of the 1960s-80s, Seeley’s designs were the top pick among the winningest motorcycle racers. Even today, Seeley-framed racing motorcycles continue to weigh in as one of the most chosen makes in vintage racing.
