    That is some of the most interesting later Schwinn information I have read Mr. Bernhardt, and thank you for posting your first hand, knowledge, and observations. It was heart breaking to see pictures...

    John, I have a Rogers sidecar that I plan to hang on my '16. I've been thinking of putting a disk brake on the sidecar wheel which could work, or may be very comical. I have this image of hitting the...

    I have the 'export' hand brake on my '16 H-D and it is a terrible excuse for a brake. It isn't even a good hill holder. The Excelsior, and Henderson double brake was far better. I tried arcing the...

    I think many people have been seduced by the concept of a powered monowheel, but it's an inherently stupid idea.

    I've been collecting pictures from the CAIMAG 'vintage pics of the day' for years and I have to say the tires for teens and earlier bikes are overwhelmingly 'light' in color. This picture...

    2494024941
    I agree with Roger that most every picture I have seen of pre-'24 Harleys have black grips. On tires, I have seen more 'white' tires than black, and also many white wall tires on pre-'20...

    Robbie gives very good advice. Look at your motor numbers, and see it those frame numbers correspond. You should do some comprehensive research before you get screwed by a shyster.

    I can't say when black tires became standard, but white, gray, off-white tires were common into the early 1920s. I had a book that Goodyear published in the 1950s and it went into depth on tire...

    That was funny, Chris. If only Kodak had popularized color film in the early 20th century; stuff like this wouldn't have been a question.

    I think AMCA past president, Lonnie Campbell has a grey '44 or '45. It was my understanding the color was extremely well researched.

    These 2 pictures of a '14, and '17 are typical of the dark shade of grips I have seen in early photos of H-Ds in actual use. I have seen 'white grips in factory promotional photos from...

    I've looked for many years to find the early type H-D 'open' grips. I think most people alter the later 'closed' grip by cutting off the end in a lathe, and carefully polishing the remaining land....
