Own a pawn shop and there’s no telling what might walk in the door. If you’re not an expert on everything from jewelry to antique motorcycles, you need to know where to find one on a moment’s notice.

Pawn Stars, a second year series on The History Channel, shows what life is like in a very successful Las Vegas pawn shop. The show’s dynamic is a blend of “American Chopper” and “Antiques Road Show”, so it’s become a hit with multiple audiences. This week’s show featured a 1942 Belgian Sarolea motorcycle, one of only five known to exist in the United States.

The Pawn Stars crew purchased the bike in “as is” condition, not running, for $4,000. It later sold at auction for $7,000, not bad money for a single transaction.
