EDD your post caught my attention. |
My dad brought a 1960 Super 10 home back in probably 1964? I hardly remember that bike not being around our house. I rode the pee out of it.
My mom who is 77 now, was in my shop last week noticed the old bike, laughed and asked "Is that, that motorcycle you used to ride up the street and ride back carrying parts of it?" She was right it was not so dependable sometimes.
I guess my riding was "later in the day" in the era of the Hummer, dawn of the Jap bikes, of which I had several.
I still have that old Super 10, there are many memories related to it.
I am in the process of restoring it now.
I enjoy the Harley Hummer Club.
Thanks for the memory

I wonder how many members are in the club who rode "Hummer's" back in the day? There should be a lot of information from them that would clear up a lot of questions that are raised here.
I bought my 1952 Harley 125 in August 1953 (I hate to call it a "Hummer" because the "hummer" was a cheap version of the 125.) Harley began sending me their monthly magazine and every year they gave a detailed review of all of the models they sold. I have a lot of those magazines (my baby sister lost the Elvis issue while I was away at college.).
Has Jerry tried (or anyone else) tried to reproduce the annual new model 125/165/Hummer new model pages? It seems like a lot of the questions that are asked here would be answered by those publications.
