    They've been looking at some pretty good stuff lately.
    The last episode I saw, they bought an original condition ACE motorcycle.
    It had some issues, but what a spectacular find.
    Thanks for the heads up on the H-D bicycle.
    I'll check it out.

    I just watched the show.
    Nice looking bike!
    Too bad they didn't spend a little more time on it. NFS so move on I guess.
    Between that guys place and the first place they hit, that was a pretty entertaining episode.
    American Pickers hasn't jumped the shark yet.
    Lol!

    Looks like a 419 motocyke too. Very nice machine. That looks like the 1919 frame that would have fit the optional one year tank. Cool Thanks for sharing.

    The Cossacks MC are pure class... lot of fun to watch them do their shows, really enjoyed the man and wish him well with his hip replacement.

    The HD was a beauty,,,

    Anybody catch that when he loaded the truck at another pick they did not say anything but there was a bad to the bone art deco streamline tricycle sitting beyond the van.

    Not sure. Mike is or at least used to be under his own name Michael Wolfe. He doesn't post much so I'm not even sure if he is still a member. American Pickers has gotten some criticism from other members so it may have made Mike not want to post
    Anymore.

    Well I mean if that hoarder didn't exist it's a very good probability that that Harley would've been in the scrap pile, so technically they did preserve history.

    Im sure Mike Wolfe has a huge love for bicycles and pretty much anything on wheels. I have never met him but I hear is a cool guy. I used to watch American Pickers a lot with my daughter. After the first season we were hooked. Then as time passed on the scene of collecting started to change. People were hip to what things were worth. It seemed as if the good deals were by the wayside. Every estate sale I went to or garage sale, the first thing out of the sellers mouth was, "I saw this go for $300 on American Pickers!" And now its a common household word.

    I feel like they sold all of us out, collectors and antique proprietors etc.

    All I know, is that I enjoy the show, and it gives me something to watch other than crime dramas and idiotic situation comedies.
    Kudos to Mike Wolfe for his persistence and determination to take what I'm sure many industry executives told him would never fly, and making it happen.
    Living the dream!
    Isn't that what it's all about?
    Long live all of you American Pickers.
    I know I'm riding some of the bikes you guys unearthed.

    Like or not like, the time he talked about having a passion or love for an inanimate object!!! That's where we connect......

    I record all of the shows and watch them over and over. I watch while I eat breakfast. If I can't be at a flea market or bike show at that time, at least I can watch a show about the things I enjoy. Mike and Frank have passion. The collectors they visit have passion. They are often interested in history so they saved the made in America items. Some of it is staged for TV, but so what? Better than 99.9% of what's on TV these days. I wish Mike would be active on the CABE, that would be cool!
