Help identify this very OLD Motorcycle and side car!


Recommended Posts

I know little about old motorcycles. I came across this photo in an old box of my grandparents. I know the people in the photo but no clue on the side car or motorcycle. This was at my great great uncles farm 1920’s-1930’s?Please, let me know what you see!

That's a Harley Davidson, often referred to as a J model but with acetylene headlight it's actually a model F.  It could be 61 cu in (1000 cc) or 74 cu in (1200 cc).  It's probably 1920 - 1924, no newer than 1924.

Thank you! That time era fits with other photos I found. I love the old picture of my grandmothers cousin and husband in the snow with a sidecar!!
