    That's a '37/'38 Pontiac. A lot were shipped to Australia. I have had one for over 52 years now.

    Here's one that was in the woods, when I bought my house 5 years ago. I finally got the trees cut, that were growing up through it and got it to stand up. I stumbled upon it while clearing some brush behind the house.

    Great pic of a sad sight.

    But, OK, I'll bite.

    1924 Ford TT/Pirsch.

    Not as if I have a clue beyond what googling a few words in images spits back. :rayof

    OK, yeah, wheels don't look right, but at least I'm best (or at least first) guess so far.

    I'm betting it is a honda superhawk from the mid-late 60's. I recognise the frame, what remains of the horn and the taillight backing plate.
    Somemone correct me if I am wrong.

    I had an old Honda cl90 I think it was looked like that. Bike was way taller than me and we put knobbies on it. Went anywhere.

    The fenders don't look like Honda's to me or the r/h brake lever, may be wrong but that's what threw me.
    Taillight does though.

    Front of the frame, radiator shell, hood, side louvers, cowl and steering column, don't look the same either. :lol3

    I'd venture to say the bike frame above is more likely to be a Honda CB160 of about 1963. With the tubular brake pedal and no front frame down tube. The fenders look right for the year as well as the tail light and handle bars. Sought after now, back then they were considered throw away bikes.
