In the 50’s and 60’s, and with the possible exception of the BMW, all motorcycles were mechanically unsound.
Good thing my mother has passed, she would have rung this guys neck.
My parents owned a Indian/Vincent shop from 49 to 59.

This old man was part of the history.

3 Panheads 1959, 1960, 1963
2 Ironheads 1972 and 1973
2 Shovelheads 1976 and 1982
Evo 1997
Twincam 2003
Evo Sporty 2007

Oldtimers must be bad today, there was another one???? There were 11 total.

I've been drunk for the last month since my wife of 41 dropped dead.

Wish my photo gallery still worked. It worked great when I spent my money on a lifetime membership. Trusting this site with my 50 years of pics turned out to not work for me.

O well nothing lasts for ever.
