Harley model J board track racer. Plate info not paticularly helpful: FR 3030 ✗ Untaxed Tax due: 01 March 1992 MOT No details held by DVLA Vehicle make: HARLEY-DAVIDSON Date of first registration: August 1984 Cylinder capacity (cc): 1000 cc Fuel type: PETROL Export marker: No Vehicle status: Not taxed Vehicle colour: GREEN Vehicle type approval: Not available Wheelplan: 2 WHEEL Blackpool plate, I think issued in 1921. Likely to have a Swallow connection somehow - maybe it got a sidecar later???!!?? http://www.jaguarheritage.com/t/history_1920 As you can see, it was Lyons on the Harley-Davidson. There is one error in the accompanying blurb, the Austin Seven was introduced in 1922, not 1927. I don't think the bike has anything to do with Swallow, according to the German Wiki page, Lyons was a keen motorcycle racer as a young-un, unlikely he'd bolt a chair onto a race bike with no front brake.....
The picture was apparently taken before the formation of Swallow in 1922.

Cette fois ci c'est le side-car qui démarre laissant Groucho et la moto immobile Used by two main characters in three different scenes. Should be three stars.

Love the suicide shift handle on the left side of the gas tank.
The Lost Battalion
On the right is a Harley-Davidson and on the left an Indian. The Indian looks to be a side valve model so is probably a Scout from the 1920s. The Harley could be closer to the correct period. I will check.
The Harley has electric lights so is a Model J - like this one http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic_bikes/harley_davidson_11j.jpg but could be anywhere from 1915 to about 1924.
The Spirit of St. Louis
No closer shot of the bike?
Because of the colour it is probably a 1916 model, the last year Harley used their traditional grey.
Circa 1918 Harley-Davidson Model J - Link to "www.classic-auctions.com" - http://www.classic-auctions.com/Images/Report/107B/43712.jpg
Indian circa 1920 ?? http://www.findthebesthere.com/classics1.htm Very nice link! There I found this Harley-Davidson: http://www.findthebesthere.com/bike173061504.jpg It has the same overhead valves that protrude into the tank. What do you say? BTW, where is Jun? your suggestion is better than mine and I do think you are right - I quit too soon . On s'approche, on s'approche... http://indian.harley.free.fr/datas/photos/harley.jpg mais c'est pas encore ça: transmission à courroie et réservoir entre-tubes...
It's Harley-Davidson. This front fender was used from 1921 to 24. I think it's small (61cu in) Harley-Davidson model J (1921-24) same year (but big 74 cu in) model http://www.biker.ru/articles/walkka/fin05.jpg
Harley-Davidson Model J with factory sidecar. This model began about 1918 but got electric lights a bit later - maybe about 1920. Take your pick which year you put on this one.
Harley Davidson by the look of the front fork. Model J from around 1925 maybe. Need more details to be sure
Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops
Harley-Davidson Model J as built in 1928 and 1929 Figured they're Harleys. Supposed to be a police escort.
Police bikes in the 20's were not necessarily always Harleys, Indian was used a lot and also Henderson sold quite a number of bikes to the police.
The Russians Are Coming the Russians Are Coming
It doesn't appear to have a front brake so is probably a 1927 Harley-Davidson Model J.

Also here... ... If you have the magnifying glass.
It's a Harley Davidson, probably a Model J from around '28 because of the golden Harley Davisdon letters on fueltank

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
Supposed to be used by the US Army in WWI.
It look more like an early '20 Harley Davidson Model J because of the dome shaped clutch cover, pre-'20 models have a flatter cover
Burn 'Em Up Barnes EP: 1
It is a Harley-Davidson from the late '20s or early '30s but can't see enough to determine the model.
The Dawn Patrol
This is an odd looking bike. I am fairly sure it is not British or American. Note it has no front brkae so would date from the mid 1920s or earlier. When the motorcycle is in motion, this round thing next to the bikers leg spins...
Looks like a Harley davidson Model J as built between 1916 and 1920 to me.
A Very Long Engagement
C'est une Harley-Davidson Dupontel mentionne plusieurs fois dans le film sa Davidson (qu'il prononce "à la française") Harley-Davidson Model J (1916-24) Model J appeard in 1915, but '15model has a little differlent fuel tank shape. good site for to know 1903-29 harley http://www.harley-memories.com/1917.htm
Bought with melted down gold fillings.
Soldaat van Oranje
The bike on the right is a BSA - a side valve single from the late '30s - although it appears to have been fitted with later model telescopic forks. Don't know the model code yet. The bike on the left looks like an Indian Chief - maybe early to mid '30s.
I think its a mid-late twenties Harley Davidson J or JDH. http://www.motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic_bikes/harley_classic.html Indians never had those huge cut aways in the tanks but Harleys did.
