‘American Pickers’ Star Mike Wolfe’s Brother Is Driving In Style With Vintage Ride

by Quentin Blount

Everybody knows that American Pickers star Mike Wolfe is a huge fan of vintage motorcycles. That passion must run in the family.

Everyone knows and loves Mike Wolfe thanks to his role on the History Channel show American Pickers. He goes around the country in search of old antiques and treasures. And oftentimes during his travels or when he is out picking, he comes across vintage cars and motorcycles.

If you have been following along with us here on Outsider, then you probably know just how much Mike Wolfe loves motorcycles. As a matter of fact, he developed his passion back when he was just six years old while walking home from school. He found a pile of bikes in the garbage and decided to grab them and start a collection.

However, it turns out that Mike Wolfe’s brother, Robbie Wolfe, is a big fan of vintage rides, too. Robbie has led a successful career in his own right. He is a businessman who has owned and operated his own landscaping company, RJ Wolfe & Sons, for more than 20 years. Not only that but he can also be considered a reality television star as well thanks to making appearances on American Pickers.

On Sunday, Robbie posted a sweet set of photos of his latest vintage to social media. Check it out down below:

“Out of your mind insane. Just wow!!!” Robbie Wolfe captioned the photos on Instagram. “1923 T Bucket meet The Mint Julip built-in 1964. Just so excited to be the caretaker of this time machine. #23t #mintjulip #1960s #insane #ford #timecapspule #hotrod”

“Got 1960s written all over it! Awesome!” one fan commented.

“Too damn cool!!” another person said. “Nice find.”

When Did Passion for Vintage Bikes First Start for the ‘American Pickers’ Star?

As we mentioned up above, Mike Wolfe has had a love for bicycles and motorcycles since his early years. He told Reconnecting Roots back in 2018 that tinkering with bikes at an early age was a hobby that turned into a lifelong passion.

“Bicycles have always been a huge part of my life,” he said.

It almost makes sense that he turned out to be a professional picker. Because his very first picking session took place at just six years old. Wolfe said he found his very first bike in the trash because his family couldn’t afford to buy one.

“I started collecting bicycles when I was young because my mother was a single mother I grew up with a brother and a sister, and my father left when I was two. And she couldn’t afford to buy us a bicycle.”

And ever since then, Mike Wolfe always has his eyes peeled for vintage rides when he’s out picking. As Backwoods Hobo Jack once said, “It’s almost like he can smell motorcycle parts.”
