OK Supreme.

Never heard of them before I ran across this picture. 

Vintage German Continental tire ad.

Gilera cafe racers.

My 1927 J model Harley Davidson project.

Things are still progressing slowly.  After 3 sets of tank decals we decided to have the graphics painted on.  Picked up some parts yesterday that I had nickle plated.  Dropped off the clutch parts with Tom at Faber Cycle last weekend.  I reshaped the stock seat bracket to fit the front portion of the board track seat.  Struggling a little with the rear axle.  I purchased two reproductions but neither matches the old one.  One axle is to short (although it fits the frame perfect) and the other is apparently for an older style hub.  When this project is finished expect many of my bad purchases on E-bay or at swap meets!  Still waiting on the engine.  It has been 14 months!  I'm told it is close.

Excelsior lineup.

Indian with buddy seat.

Cast iron toys.

I have never seen the blue bike before.  I cant find another example on the internet or in any of my books on toy motorcycles.  Is it new?  Ultra rare?  I want one!  It was listed on Ebay for $100 buy it now.  I guess I should have jumped on it.

Early race on the sand.

Post marked 1909.  Copy righted in 1905!
