Anybody recognize the bike?






This is really not a review, but a request for help. These pictures are of my grandfather and were taken in 1918. You can see the HD on one photo and the words Harley Davidson on the other. I was hoping someone could tell me the exact model of the bike.






I recently got the pictures from one of my aunts and then had a shop restore and enlarge them. After I got my first bike in 2004 my dad informed me that my grandfather had a motorcycle - before he got married. Apparently it was his first and last bike.




Click on the picture for a larger image.

Any and all info will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Cool photos, even more cool when there are known persons. This is a Harley 61"/1000cc, you find this from counting the cooling fins on the exhaust on the front cylinder (5 off when 61"m 7 when 74").
    The exact year could be 1916 to 1918, hard to tell as they where quite like each other.

    Kind regards
