The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum was one of three chosen locations for an Antiques Roadshow segment for the upcoming shows taped in Rapid City, South Dakota. Episode #1714, the second hour from Rapid City, features a segment on motorcycle toys that was taped while Roadshow was in the Black Hills. This segment will premiere on Public Television stations nationwide on Monday, April 29th at 8pm/7pm Central.
In the segment taped at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, host Mark L. Walberg talks with vintage toy expert Noel Barrett about a number of 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.
As a special treat, watch Mark take a ride on a vintage Harley-Davidson Servi-Car (a three-wheeled motorcycle). Additional footage shot at the museum will be posted on the Antiques Roadshow website after the episode has aired. Please check your local listings to confirm the April 29th at 8pm/7 pm Central air date.
