(Al Smith was the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate in 1928, so that fits (he was a strong opponent of prohibition, so good on ya', Al!! )

I would really appreciate any info I can get on this bike, and what better place to get it?!? Thanks!!!



JD Harley. Pretty beat up, tho......
Yeah. If you could hear the stories he's told us about riding it, you'd understand!!

His son, my uncle, thought it was an Indian. Any possibility?

A bit of history - this guy went on to become the Prime Minister of Australia from 1983- 1991. He nearly lost his life on that Panther. Pic taken in 1950.

See NATIONAL LIBRARY OF AUST

The girl pictured was his first wife Hazel, who sadly lives in care now due to Alzheimer's disease.

No. By that time, all Indians were flatheads. That has the HD pocket valve engine. Forks are also HD.
