This 1930s Harley VL & sidecar were recently pulled out of a basement after sitting there for more than 10 years. It was cleaned up, sorted out and is now back on the road.

While most people think of gold and silver as the presious metals to invest in, we at American Iron Magazine would like to propose this is a great time to invest in a different kind of precious metal – classic motorcycles.

If you bought an original paint or well restored Harley Knucklehead, Indian Scout, or just about any pre-war classic American motorcycle five or ten years ago, your investment would be better than any oil stock. A lot better. And more fun too.

And to all the nay-sayers who say there are no more real barn finds out there, we are pleased to report you wrong. They are there, but you have to dig a bit harder to find them. But the reward is well worth the effort.

Before buying a classic motorcycle, we suggest you do your homework first. There are plenty of places to do this – on-line (try Classic American Iron) and in print (like in American Iron Magazine) and vintage motorcycle clubs.
