Family Treasures: Vintage Harley Davidson Motorcycle Photos

While visiting my parents over the Christmas holiday, I poked through some old photos looking for pictures of my dad and his motorcycles. I did find 2 from the 1950’s. I *think* he said the green one was a Harley Davidson 1950 FLH 74? Admittedly I know zero about Harley Davidson models so I would appreciate any guidance if I made a mistake.

My love of motorcycles seems to have passed on to me from my dad. I love hearing stories about his youth. Having photographs of him from that time are priceless to me.

The first picture is taken in the back of a building of a hangout called “Ma Bell’s” (Not the phone company). She was a nosey old woman who wore her hair tied back in a bun and listened in on all of the conversations (pain in the ass)….

The place had a pool table without pockets and they served hamburgers, hot dogs etc. It was a small place, but drew all of the local crowd. It was one of the few biker hangouts. This was the meeting place where you would meet and decide were the evening was to be spent.
