This is another one of those mystery photographs where I ask you, our learned readers, to let us know what motorcycle model that this and if any of you have any backstory on the picture in question.
My own (probably wrong) guess is that it’s a 1930’s Indian something-something.
As I had surmised above, I was wrong (that’s not at all uncommon, just ask my Mrs), it turns out the bike is a 1929 Harley-Davidson JDH. The picture was taken by the talented Bob Magill and features Don & Marge Fera. Now that we’ve discovered Magill’s work we’ll bring you more it over the coming weeks and months.
