LOL. 101 Indian Scouts had 1/2 pan seats. There is no metal in the middle.

This is a favorite RPPC (Real Photo Post Card) in my collection. It belonged to my best friend who passed away suddenly from surgery complications 5 years ago. She was an ephemera and antique book dealer and for some reason this was part of her personal collection and I had always admired it. At any rate I have it out on my desk now and think of her each time I look at it.

On the back it reads:
Sheb. Wis, 10/8/12
Just a line to let you know that I am feeling fine. Last Sunday on a trip of only 134 miles I had 2 blow outs. Can you beat it?

I figured I would add it to the thread!

The gent on the front of the bike is W.M. Shuey. A relative of mine that raced Indian Motorcycles and had this service station in Pa..
Dennis L. let me know that he found the original hand fan in a box and let me acquire it from him.
The pics came from one of his great grand kids who took the shots of the framed pics.
Needless to say, the gas/oil/car/bike/speed addiction runs in the family!

Not an old M/C but sorta related. Looks cool. It's fake but I'd still like to own it. [Linked Image from i.imgur.com]
Posted By: minuteman Re: Vintage Motorcycle pictures - Tue Apr 21 2020 01:41 PM
did the owner say it was fake morgan? that face plate looks original to me, cant see anyone putting that much info on a face plate.
but it looks like that deco edging was screwed onto the clock and has been added. possibly over some neon holes underneath it but just a guess.

Rich Packer makes these. Each is different in some way but almost all are Ebeberg Harley themed. He finds an old clock, in this case an Cleveland "Aztec" and does his graphics work.. He's a master and making them look all original. I've seen him call them barn finds on facebook and when I called him out on it and he blocked me. LOL

Technically, it is an old, original clock but with added graphics. I'm not sure what to think of the modern screws used to attach the zigarod.
