    Well you opened a can of memories with the Steen post. Our first motorcycle was a Kawasaki 75 our mother purchased from someone who won it in a raffle. We learned on it and outgrew it to too soon trade it in on a pair of new Steen 100's. I later owned a Rickman Matisse B44 scrambler that had the Steen feather logo on the headstock. The second photo is my brother and I on two Indian 648 Scouts we restored and photographed in the same place (our mothers driveway) 25 years later.

    This made me look twice, never seen one of these before. Popped up on Ebay UK at £10K.

    The original Rickmans were Tribsa T100's, so that's a good photo.

    I don't think you'll be able to get the head on and off that in the frame...it was bad enough in a Featherbed.
