This is my grandpa and his first and only Harley. The little girl on the seat is my aunt Florence and she is 96 years old. My grandma told me on her first ride they went over the street car tracks in Detroit and she was thrown off. Notice the side saddle seat in the back. Also notice the gas powered headlight. Very cool! I shot this from a photo my dad had.
