Barber's early interest in motor vehicles manifested itself in Porsche racers during the 1960s, when he wrenched his own cars and notched 63 first-place finishes.*But he became intrigued with motorcycles, especially the variety of ways different designers and engineers chose to solve similar problems.*He began collecting motorcycles and decided to open a museum when the collection reached about 60, he said.
