Not real old. My wife's Dad. Circa 1977. A 1974 Electra Glide. The bowling ball version.
Photo taken in California about 1916.
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
My Uncle in India in WW2. I have no idea what the bike is.
Wow this thread it epic! Love the history that combines family and the thing we all hold in common. Awesome!
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
Great story Ugly to go along with the pictures
Posing behind one of the bikes used in the barrel and steel ball.
That looks like a Royal Enfield.
Here's one of my Dad on his AJS, think he'd not long finished his National Service when this was taken.
Don't think so. Whilst I am only passingly familiar with the Superior that front end does not look right for a Brough. Could be wrong though!
The bike that is ridden in Heaven:
My dad sold one of these out of his workshop in 1971 for then NZ$250
Still have not forgiven him
(this pic has been doing the rounds of the net for years...)
He will be Missed
On his ???
With his little Bro on the back
And with his last bike (Dad on the left looking at his SV). He is 65 and currently bikeless but always looking...he also quite often offers to look after one of my bikes for me...
My pop on his 1950 pan head. This photo is from about 1967/68

Must of been intended for the hang over days ?
