Biographical note:

Tom Cotter writes regularly for Road & Track and other magazines and has a deep-seated love for motorcycle and automotive rescue. He has written two books on the lure of collector vehicle archaeology, The Cobra in the Barn, winner of a 2006 International Automotive Media Award, and its follow-up, The Hemi in the Barn. Cotter most recently authored the biography of car builder extraordinaire Dean Jeffries.Tom has been in and around cars and bike all of his life. He built one of the most successful PR agencies in motorsports, with a client list ranging from NASCAR to the SPEED Channel. Cotter lives in Davidson, North Carolina. 

The title on Tom Cotter's business card reads: "Certified Car Geek." For the past 30 years, Cotter has worked on nearly every end of the car business: mechanic, car sales, automotive public relations and marketing executive, auto racing authority, historian, racer, collector, restorer, journalist, and author. He has authored 10 automotive books, including most of the popular In the Barn series for Motorbooks. He has written for the New York Times and Road & Track magazine. Whenever he sits down at his keyboard to write another book, you can be sure that he has grease under his fingernails. Official Website: www.cobrainthebarn.com

Main description:

It’s every motorcyclist’s dream. A friend or acquaintance says, “You know, there’s an old bike that’s been sitting in this garage for years.” The hunt is on. And rather than the usual worthless Hondazukimaha pile of hopeless oxidation, at the back of that barn you find a genuine classic, the motorcycle collector’s dream.

The Vincent in the Barn tells forty such stories--tales of motorcycle hunting dreams come true. From Ducatis in basements to Vincents abandoned in sheds, Harleys in barns to Brit bikes moldering behind urban garages, these are the stories that fuel every motorcyclist’s fantasies. The only difference? They’re true.

See Tom Cotter, author of Motorbooks “In the Barn” series, interviewed by Jay Leno on JayLenosGarage.com: http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/video/jays-book-club-the-hemi-in-the-barn/1237422/

Review quote:

"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

Review quote:

“…a thoroughly fun romp through a corner of the hobby most of us wish we inhabited – and swear we someday will.” – Motorcycle
“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
