My mom pulled out this old photo of my grandpa on this unidentified motorcycle. We know he owned a few Harley's from the 1940's. We have a few pictures of him on that bike, and heard lots of stories (he lost 3 fingers in the drive chain of one). Digging through some old photo's this picture showed up. This is in front of a barn that my mother remembers was on the old farm place, but she is unsure of the motorcycle. I have no idea what this bike is, it does not have a Harley motor, or Indian fenders. As we are in rural IA, I can't imagine there were too many other motorcycle dealers around during that era. I was really hoping someone smarter, wiser, and with a little more experience than I would have a clue.
