American Restoration, the History Channel show that seeks to “bring a bit of history back to life,” is returning with new episodes this summer, beginning with special hour-long show featuring Billy Joel.
The episode, which airs May 28, will follow Joel as he takes his frozen-motored British Royal Star motorcycle to the show’s expert, Rick Dale, to be restored at his shop in Las Vegas. Promo clips show a very warmly dressed Joel bundled up in a coat and sweater while he talks parts with a sleeveless-shirted Dale.
The 64-year-old musician proves that he knows a thing or two about bikes, and he also shares some musical knowledge with Dale, convincing him to refurbish an ol’ Steinway piano in the restoration expert’s “boneyard.” If we’re lucky, there may even be a little mini-performance by the rock legend.
Tune in at 10 P.M. EST on May 28 to find out whether Billy Joel has a low tolerance for chilly weather or whether Rick Dale is just a badass who doesn’t get cold.
