I have seen the old 80's jap bikes (that I grew up with) on eBay advertised as 'barn finds'. Incredibly one bike even had a photo of it covered in hay!! So it must be true. This, of course, means the bike is worth a great deal, from what I can gather.
What do people who own barns do? "I think I'll sort out that old barn of ours - wait a minute! What is that under the hay? Well dang me it is! It's an old ".
Do me a favour! We have an old Honda NH80 Vision that has sat in the corner of the garage for nearly 20 years. Was going to bin it, but if I can hide it in someones barn I might be quids in .
Barn finders? Pah!
