What my Pappy and Grand Pappy Rode

Digging in the family Picture Vault un-earths some cool old photos. Ernest, My Grand Father on what I know to be a 1917 Belt Drive Precision. Dressed in is Sunday best... Complete with a bird on the handle bars for companionship !



And a new to me of my Dad, Eric Norman as a young man on a Pre Unit English Twin with Side Car. Can some one help me with the identification. This was taken properly in Mildura Victoria Cheers

Yep, that's what I was thinking.

Those are awesome photos!

When I was in high school and riding motorcycles a lot, my Dad and I visited my Grandmother and step-Grandfather, Albert, in Los Angeles. Albert was a doctor and had a small practice in Boyle Heights. Albert stood about 5'4" and weighed about 130. When I knew him, he was in his 70's. When he found out that I was riding, he told me that when he was in medical school, he owned a Harley and rode it all over Austria. We have no pictures.

I love that family motorcycle history...

Here's a photo of my Dad, taken on Saltspring Island around 1938 on his 1927 Harley. This wasn't a show bike! He used this for his basic transportation and brought home many deer strapped over it. This old bike brought home the venison!

I have 1 of my father doing a wheelie on an old Ducati. I gotta learn how to scan and post it. Motorcycles and fishing are 2 of the traditions that are currently in the 3rd generation of my family. Good Stuff
