I like the gloves. Would like a better view of any scarf being worn.

How about those shin guards. And would those windshields be tempered glass?

I thought the shin guards were pretty cool too.

The windshields were likely made of plastic as were many biplane windshields and so forth. One of the names was called, "perspex." Not sure of the spelling. Some also used a cellulose plastic of some kind. Those kinds are the ones that usual have turned yellow when you see them on old bikes in museums.

And the Indian/Harley wars continue to this day. Both great bikes when left stock or nearly so. Or when changed by someone that knows what they are doing.

What are you basing the circa date on? I would think it's somewhat after 1930...? like 1935? or even 1940?

Which Vancouver, WA or BC. If BC, do you know if there are any dedicated motorcycle parking spots. See the last few posts in the Motorcycle picture challenge.
