There has been a shortage of great motorcycle photos here recently, but this one taken in the Brenham area of Washington County, Texas, and dated 1918 by Winkelmann’s Studio, should makeup for that. The machine is outfitted with extras including: an acetylene headlamp, a handlebar-mounted Klaxon horn, a toolbox, an air pump, and a rack for parcels on the back.
The proud Indian V-Twin Motorcycle rider is wearing a heavy cardigan sweater, as was popular back in this time period. Note the American flag motif pinwheel attached to the front fender. Can any of our readers help to date this machine? The photo is courtesy of the University of North Texas Libraries. You can see hundreds more interesting motorcycle photos here on The Old Motor.
