Meet Frank Fritz

History's "American Pickers"

Frank Fritz is a modern day recycler in the antique collectable field. His interests are old motorcycles, old toys, old cars, and anything that is old and unusual. Fritz grew up in Iowa but has traveled all over this beautiful country, thanks in part to his collecting. He started picking early, collecting rocks and beer cans as a kid. He later worked for many years as a fire and safety inspector but always had a passion for antiques and junk. These days, Fritz spends all his time on the road, digging for treasure in barns, garages and junkyards across America. Even-tempered and affable, he has a way with potential sellers and a knack for putting out fires; many call him the bearded charmer. Fritz does get a little carried away, however, by anything with an engine, and he often has to fight the urge to buy yet another motorbike for his collection.
