Re: Vintage Bike Photos

OK Paul;

So just exactly is it that would make you think these would be 'RUSSKIE' scoots?...............

Re: Vintage Bike Photos

I see several Harley-Davidsons and Indians, but I was more intrigued by the bike-mounted machine guns. Effective traffic control!

Well not all . . .

Appears that one of the soldiers had an Iron Cross Medal as well which goes back to 1218 but more common in Prussia and then Germany.



Thought Harley's didn't have a good dealer network in Europe but I've been mistaken before

My survival response is, "Yes dear, YOU are right!"

Harley was making some opposed twin bikes with drive lines to send to the Sahara......to defeat sand abrasion........maybe only like a thousand or something in those numbers.............could be a fun research if your in......I remember seeing an articale about 3 years ago................old bikes are just a hoot to me..J
