    Default Old standard bike spotted. It's an H-D, but . . .

    This odd, older contraption has taken a place on the sidewalk near my workplace lately. Can you ID the model and vintage? Click image for larger version.

    Not so far as I know. It happens to be parked right where another old Harley used to be parked daily. That other one had a suicide shifter, a gear shift on the side. So I think it is just a guy who likes the old Harleys. Like this photo.Click image for larger version.

    Looks to be a ‘57 or ‘58 Sportster.
