If you’re a fan of two-wheeled history and restoration, our own Wheels Through Time museum, and motorcycles in general, then we suggest tuning into season 7 of “American Restoration” on the History Channel.
The new American Restoration will feature Dale Walksler, owner of Wheels Through Time (located right here in Maggie Valley) and his crew. This season they will be bringing two-wheeled American History back to life as Dale and crew will share the screen with four other shops, each bringing their unique talent to the show. Filming this adventure started in July of 2015 and continued through the year, keeping Dale busy behind the museum scene restoring and bringing back to like some of Americas rarest two-wheeled treasures.
Dale however in not the only “star” on the show. Always eager Asheville, N.C. resident, John Gustufson, is the MacGyver like mechanic that can fix anything. Bob White A.K.A “quail” currently serves on the museum board of directors and holds up many of the historical aspects of the restorations on the new show.
Of coarse television is nothing new at the museum . Discovery/ Velocity hit it off with Dale and crew in its 2 year run of “What’s In The Barn” and Mike and Frank of “American Pickers” have always trusted Dale for his knowledge and expertise.
