    Is this a total lost spark? Meaning it has a battery you have to keep recharging every so often? I do not see any charging system. I would give my right you know what just to drive one.

    Bruce I really enjoy your videos wish you had more of them. In 1910 Harley sold 3,168 motorcycles.

    That's a moped. Notice the pedals.

    Compared to cars in 1910 this thing looks like a piece of cake to start and use. Not TOO different from a modern bike, a Ford Model T for instance has nothing in common with a modern car!

  6. I bet it is worth a fortune!

    A beauty and thanks for sharing it, I studied up the bike industry a bit and it was such a big deal in the late 1800s that it started everyone making bikes and then after the industry got saturated all kinds of other things started being produced, and it made America very mechanical minded. every smart kid was building something , and then of course motors were added and a whole new industry.. Just imagine some guy on that bike in 1910, Be like having your own jet today .

  15. my puch moped would smoke this thing but i have to admit that i love all the bridges and girders on the front forks for structural support

  16. the real question is will it weelie

  17. I love this machine, but I can not buy one, you have a technical document with dimentions?. Diameter frame tubes, diameter of crankshaft, piston, outer diameter of motor cases. I'm gathering information to build a model in my home workshop. Another model that interest me is the 1905. I am grateful for any information. Thank for your work
