    Snagged from somewhere, Folks!

    Old photos can tell you a lot about working on Scheblers.

    Like tools.

    I see a brace, and bit in that photo, Tom. I'll have to add that to my tool box.

    "Speed wrench", Eric!

    Note the socket (instead of a "bit") just to the right of Harley Tool #1

    Speaking for myself; I love dogs, and sidecars.

    Don't forget the logging chain!

    PS: I only have an 18" Stillson.

    PPS: Is that a zipper on the bib over-alls?

    That's a right big pipe wrench there and as Eric mentioned the presence of the brace. I wonder if they were just staging tools for effect. I suppose you could use a brace with a flat screw bit for speedy disassembly but man that pipe wrench had a bit of leverage in the handle.

    Uhoh.

    My No. 901 Stanley brace (patents from '02 to '06) tightens, but ratchets turned left.
    I tuned it with Harley tool #1 a few times, but can't figure out how to reverse it.

    And my Stillson doesn't have "pipe" teeth.
    (Maybe to begin with?)

    PS: So when were zippers invented?

    Then here's two from New Zealand. A family photo, circa 1930, with dog, left hand sidecar chassis with (probably) locally built sidecar, all on a well-used circa 1923 Harley.

    And a scan of a postcard: "NZ Police Patrolman on a 10/12 HP Harley Davidson c. 1923". I've seen the same picture with the bike identified as a 1924 model. Hard to tell whether the front mudguards are "dished" for the pre-24 narrow forks.
