    Default Help ID Motocycles in this photo 1914?

    Hi all I have this photo of my Uncle John - bike on right I think that it's a Indian Power Plus with aftermarket speedo, it also has gas lights I have heard that people had a choice of either gas or electric but did not trust the electric 100% the photo is dated 1914- But I have been told that the Harley on the left side is a 1916, because of the cutouts on the gas tank.

    Thanks for your help I appreciate it. Denis Kerechuk- A new member.

    Thanks for the great picture, Denis. I'm going to say 1917 on the Indian because it looks like it has the new 1917 rounded tanks. Also, 1917 was the last year for linkage type controls on the handlebars. On the '16 Harley; I have never seen a Prest0-lite tank mounted that way.
