Two Guys & a Century of Knowledge
John Healy and Don Hutchinson bring over 100 years in combined motorcycle experience to the discussion table during their seminar. While they are Triumph gurus they can talk days about the British motorcycle. They never have a set plan for their seminars; they base them off your questions making each one unique. If you happen to be in quiet crowd, you will surely gain from their knowledge of paint and preparation or a discussion on Amal Carburetors. (The Barber Museum recently created a display of Amals on the 1st floor, don’t miss that.)
Engine Performance Enhancements and Upgrades for the Vintage Rebuild
Want to get more from your vintage motorcycle? This is your “can’t miss” seminar! Leo Goff will explain how to get more power from your bike, how to make that power more useable, and how to get that power reliably. While the discussion is focused on Vintage Motorcycles, it also will touch some on modern bikes. Every seminar is different as Leo will field different questions from audience members.
Collecting and Protecting
In this new for 2013 Barber Vintage Festival seminar, Hagerty Insurance is pleased to present a moderated panel discussion which will examine the current and future market for vintage motorcycles, discuss how to find what you want and lay out the proper steps one should take to protect vintage bikes.
TIG Techniques (aka How to Use the Hot Glue)
This new seminar at the 2013 Barber Vintage Festival with Bryan Fuller along with welding extraordinaire Mark Prosser will present hands-on TIG welding. Using equipment supplied by Lincoln Electric there will be welding of Steel, Aluminum and Stainless Steel. Participants in this seminar will receive a copy of the TIG chapter from Mark and Bryan’s soon to be released “Full Bore Welding” while supplies last.
Don Hutchinson of Hutchinson Cycles of Wake Field, Mass., has been in the business of motorcycle restoration for 45 years. He is considered an expert in all aspects of motorcycle restoration - particularly paintwork - and is considered “the True Supplier of correct paint for most popular British bikes.” His first ambition was to be a chemist, but then he discovered motorcycles. His first was a 1948 Indian.
John Healy is a life-long British motorcycle enthusiast. A bit misdirected at age 15, his first bike was a ground up restoration of a basket case 1947 Indian Chief. While restoring this bike he got to know the local Indian, Triumph, Norton, BSA, Velocette, Ducati, and Matchless dealer, Pete Andrews in Boston, Massachusetts. Starting in 1959, it was working for Pete that his love affair of British bikes, especially Triumph, started. In 1966, with the financial help from Pete, John and his wife Susan opened a Triumph dealership in the Boston area, which they ran as a family business until it all came to an end in 1983 when the co-operative closed their doors.
In the early seventies he started manufacturing importing and distributing British parts wholesale to British dealers around the country under the name Coventry Spares, Ltd... He still distributes such components as Hepolite, Amal, Lucas, JCC and sources bits from all around the world to keep these Brit bikes running. John also offers the one of the largest selections of Vincent parts in
For the past ten years John has done technical seminars across the nation at such venues as Vintage Motorcycle Days and Triumph Come Home Rally - Lake Cachuma, California and will share some of his knowledge about Brit bikes and especially the secrets and mysteries of Amal carburetors.
John also publishes Vintage Bike which is the quarterly newsletter of the Triumph International Owners Club. Along with technical articles written by John, the pages hold articles from the likes of Kevin Cameron, Mick Duckworth (ex-editor of Classic Bike) and Jim Reynolds. John also is moderator for the Triumph Forum on: www.Britbike.com
Leo’s professional mechanical career started in the mid-sixties, when he worked as a mechanic at a local dealership in his hometown of Memphis, TN. He gained valuable experience working on Indians, Matchless, Norton, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, and several other brands which were sold, or had been sold, by the dealership. In the fall of 1969, he opened his own repair shop, and later sold Norton, Hodaka, Ossa, Laverda, Jawa, and CZ Motorcycles.
Always having an interest in hi-performance and racing, Leo’s interest in drag racing found him building some of the quickest motorcycles on the streets of Memphis throughout the seventies for his customers. His Nortons were extremely successful on the drag strips around the south, and Leo became noted for his engine building and tuning skills with Norton, and other brands as well.
Leo competed in National events starting in the late sixties, and soon set and held several national records, and winning national events. This cumulated in his winning the I.D.B.A Super Eliminator Championship number one plate with his Norton Powered Drag bike in 1984, and being awarded several achievement awards along the way, one being the Mechanic of the Year award given by the I.D.B.A.
Leo continues to work in engine development, cylinder head design, modification and rebuilding, along with restoration projects, as time allows, at Memphis Motor Werks, in Memphis, Tennessee. He is still active with Norton, and most all British marques, as well as BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, the new Triumphs, H-D, and most other European marques.
Leo currently works with many race teams, including Babe DeMay’s Yamaha sponsored Memphis Shades Flat Track Team, several successful “New Triumph” race teams, as well as several automotive race teams involved with Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, BMW, and VW.
Growing up in Texas Bryan Fuller could never leave well enough alone. Bicycles, radios, motorcycles, about anything was torn apart and customized. Bryan’s father, during a midlife crisis bought a 65 Mustang to rebuild, with that Bryan was hooked on building cars and has never looked back. Once a Biology Degree with Chemistry minor was achieved he set off to WyoTech in Laramie, Wyoming. Graduating top of his class Bryan was rewarded with the best job he could ask for, an apprenticeship at the famous So-Cal Speed Shop in Pomona, CA. While learning from expert Kiwi sheetmetal fabricator GMT, Bryan started building custom bicycles after hours. Those bikes caught the eye of Chip Foose. That led Fuller to Foose Design and helping create 2 Ridler award winning vehicles; “Impression” and “Stallion”. As luck would have it while at Foose Design TV came calling and found Fuller involved in the pilot of “Rides” then on the first “A-Team” from the show “Overhaulin”. Fuller went on to help “Overhaulin” overhaul 10 rides.
In ‘04 Bryan created Fuller Hot Rods and relocated to Atlanta, GA with a mission to create “Usable Works of Art that Inspire and Entertain People”. In the years since FHR competed and placed in several AMD World Championship of Bike Building and Artistry in Iron competitions. “Impaler” the first full car build from FHR was awarded the coveted GM Design Award at SEMA in 2010.
Unable to shake TV Bryan has appeared on “Hot Rod TV”, “Car Crazy”, “V8 TV”, a bicycle even appeared on “Pawn Stars”. Bryan did the 10 day build/thash session on “Biker Build Off” (the bike is part of the permanent Barber Museum Collection now). Having completed a 4 year stint as host of “Two Guys Garage” Fuller can now be seeing working his magic on “Café Racer TV”.
Fuller was commissioned by red Bull racing to build the trophies for Moto GP in Indianapolis and has added publisher/author to his resume with his first book “Full-Bore Sheetmetal” (written with Mark Prosser). A second book “Full Bore Welding” is coming soon. Mark and Bryan will both be presenting so come “see some of the new book” in real life.
