Billy Joel and Jason Mraz On ‘American Restoration’ Beginning May 28th On The History Channel

Tune in for Billy Joel and Jason Mraz, who both enlist the services of Rick Dale this season on HISTORY’s American Restoration.

Billy offers up a rare BSA 850 motorcycle, which has deep ties to his storied motorcycle past. Rick Dale and the American Restoration camera team visited Billy’s 20th Century Cycles, in Oyster Bay, Long Island, to unveil their latest restoration project.

Jason Mraz, known for the chart topping hits “I'm Yours” and “The Remedy,” needs Rick to restore a sign from his grandfather’s old shop. Rick had an amazing time digging into the backstory of these two items.

American Restoration tells the story behind things you just don’t see any more. A barber shop towel steamer, a 1964 Ducati Falcon, a Gatling gun arcade game — oddball artifacts like these are part of America’s cultural mosaic, and every refurbishment brings a bit of history back to life.

Billy Joel Kick-Starts the Return of HISTORY’s American Restoration; New Episodes Beginning May 28 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY®. Jason Mraz appears on this season’s episode airing June 18th.
