    So cool that you take the time to research your family history Steve. Thanks for sharing. BTW - Harrington is but 100 miles as the crow flies from where I’m sitting.

    Thanks Kevin! Yes, i am very familiar with that Northeast Nebraska area and the Fremont area as well; back in the day, around 1978, i bought three brand new 1974 Norton Commando's from Bennett Gun and Cycle. i can't remember for certain the the town you live near by; is it Fort Calhoun? That is where the '27 i restored came from; Judith Schaefer in Fort Calhoun. She was selling off things from her husband's estate, his name was Leonard Schoefer. Did you know Leonard or know of him? Or his son who is also deceased? There is a story behind his son in regards to Leonard's motorcycles, at least according to Judith...

    Yes, Fort Calhoun. There are a lot of Schaefer’s around here, but I don’t think I knew Leonard or Judith. You never know though, the way I am with names.
