Rally neat photo, Jay. Thanks!!!
Tremendous!!! That's about as good as it gets.
Thank you Jay.

My father in law rode an H D of that time period with a side car--his girl friend/wife rode in the sidecar. They were wed at 16-- both long gone now--60 plus years together--tough stock back in those days. Joe
