I bet this was one tough old guy back in his day. It looks like he drove the crap out of his rig while having a great time doing it.

Back in the day I bet this could have been any town USA.

I bet this was brand new just out of the dealer show room. Everything looks new even her riding boots.

This guy could have been one of the flat trackers of the 1930's hauling his racing bike and extra parts around with him on his sidecar rig.

The picture pretty much explains itself.

And just think the only brake on the old rigs till 1928 for Harley s first year with a front brake was the poor band brake on the back of the bike.

Being Harley did not come out with a return oil system till 1936 on the knuckle head more then likely most of these bikes are total loose oil systems.

Jay,

Do you know where the photo was taken, also any idea what year their bike was I see two sidecar's in the photo.

Any chance you could post a higher resolution picture, I like to try and identify the different brands of bikes that may be in the photo. From what I can see there are a couple of JD models and some VL models a few I can't see well enough.

Great photo, one to treasure for years to come.

I would think the big twins where mostly J and V models as the picture was taken in 1936 the first year of the knuckle. Could even be before the knuckle hit the dealer ship. Now 36 was the last year for the V and the U did not come out till 37.
