Looks like side valves, so it's a Powerplus, introduced in 1916. A system of nickel plated links from the left handlebar to the throttle instead of a cable, so it's an early Powerplus, maybe from the first year?

Note the US Flag whirley-bird on the front fender and the tire pump in front of the magneto.
