How cool is that!! :)

I just love seeing all the historical stuff related to motored biking.

Everytime someone with a motorcycle pokes fun at my motored bike, I remind them that these things are where their motorcycles came from.

That thing would be HORRIBLE to ride, the pedals are set directly under the seat!

Holley Motorcycle

Hi all, in my research of vintage american motorcycles, an interesting fact emerged about this company.

These guys had learned to build great Carborators (at the time) and Henry Ford engaged them to design and build carbs for his company, ultimately they quit building Motorcycles, and became the "Holley Carborator Company"

From that last picture of the 1902, it looks like the pedal chain runs on the left side.. how peculiar!

edit: Lookin at the original ad, it looks like the image was reversed left to right. Wonder if this was common practice for printing back then.
