This is the fifth and last installment of photos from the Harland Krause Motorcycle Photo Album. The Model “T” Ford speedster (above) is the second view of it shown in this series, and the earlier image can be seen here. It appears that when it was built the chassis components offered with the Mercury Speedster were used, as the dropped front axle is clearly from that source although the body is not. You learn all about the Mercury Body Corp. here.
The first two photos below show Harlan Krause who may have rode a hill climb machine for the Smith & Enander Indian Shop in Rockford, Illinois, run by Claude Smith and Arthur Enander. Krause can be seen (below) in his own shop that he opened later. You can view all of the earlier photos in the Harland Krause motorcycle photo album here that are courtesy of Michael DeBock.
