My friend Kåre found this old photo from the early fifties when visiting an old relative who is living in one of the nearby valleys.
This is amazing as I thought in all modesty I knew pretty well by now what Harley`s had been where in my neighborhoods, but no.
This late fourties 45" / 750 cc is most likely a private import from US, maybe the first owner over here bought it when working in the merchant navy?
I like this bike, with the Chevron and rails on the front mudguard, the windshield with a rosette and of course the pennants (the one visible is from Grimstad, like 100km`s from where this photo was captured..
Damned, how am I gonna get some sleep tonight, I will wonder what happened to this old hog.
