This remarkable looking machine was built by Harlan Ramey in 1916 in Ames, Iowa. It’s based on a 1913 Harley Davidson and it appears to have a front sled added for steering and a small wooden sled added to the rear so he could carry a lady in style.

This bike, a cafe racer called “Motobee” was built by Walt in 2010, it’s based on a 1983 Harley-Davidson Sportster but as with all Siegl builds, not much of the original bike remains.
