    A nice video about Barrington Motor Works

    Ran across this video about their shop up in New Hampshire. Nice story about Chris and Barbara's life and their passion for vintage motorcycles.

    Thanks Kurt. They've got a very complete website too: http://www.barringtonmotorworks.com

    Here's one statement from the site which revolves around the cost of restoration:

    "At the outset it must be recognized and appreciated that a vintage BMW motorcycle can be “original” only once. The most competent restoration of a vintage machine may return the machine toward originality, but the machine will no longer be truly original. We encourage the retention of original paint when possible and restore only that paint which requires such restoration."
