    Can't tell for sure if this is real or a posed retro shot but it screams to my memories of an earlier time. Everything about the shot, the bike the beer, the clothes, the girl ...right down to the dirt stains on the knees of her jeans.:wink:

    Her expression on that gorgeous fresh face, framed by her hair so obviously tangled by the wind... Damn! Where did those days go?:2cry

    My girlfriend's great aunt, "Venelda", outside the restaurant in which she worked. This is not posed but the subject's own bike. Depression era New Jersey. Unknown make, maybe someone can tell me if it's H-D or Indian.

    Looks like an indian head on the front fender. Could be wrong though...

    Not an Indian horn though.

    Harley's had lights on front fender, but not one that looked like Chief heads.

    But Indian Sport Scouts had light that was not a Chief head.

    So, ultimately, I can't answer your question.

    One way you can tell it is a more modern shot is the top of the bear can, it is a flip tab not a pull top. Those came into use mid 80's or so. That means at the latest this would be a mid 80's shot.

    Beer can is alum. with part of a tab sticking up on top. So, it isn't a pull tab. That makes it early to mid 80"s at the oldest.
