Not my grand-pappy but, cause I found out for him what bike they are, I'm allowed. Some proud Kiwi on the left, somewhere on the eastern front, WW1.

If you guys are any good, that's a little quizz.

Awesome pics. I love seeing pics of old Harleys. Harley's best days, imo.

Two pics of my grandfather's brother Earl. On the back of each photo is his description to my Great Grandfather. November 17, 1945 a Turkey Run competition. We think Florida judging by the palmetto plants.

Earl was quite a drifter, reportedly hooking up with some 1% clubs eventually. Can't prove a thing yet, I'm still investigating and seeing if his only daughter can remember much. My grandfather convinced my dad that he was killed in prison, but a photo of him has surfaced standing with my grandfather and they are both quite up in years. Gotta love blacksheep stories.

Here are a couple of my Dad circa 1959, one on his Matchless 500, and one on his Triumph 650 Thunderbird.

Not sure on the year models - If any one can help me with that, please post your thoughts. Thanks

Hi Deej I agree The reason I wanted to start the thread for me was to give a big High Five to my Grandad and my father but also to my older Brother who has a k75 and my sister that used to have a scooter. In other words multi generational families that ride
