The Yoder bulb horn had Yoders name, etc on the mounting
flange web casting and it was there on all their 1 note and 2 note horns. The bugle end was where the lettering is. It read, "Hollywood Goose Horn"
Yoder made several versions of the Bulb horn for use on
bicycles, tricycles, boats cars, etc. Yoder also made the
"Wolf Whistle" horn as used on cars, trucks that utilized
the vacuum system rather than a bulb.

Of little or no interest, my barbers name is Yoder. I know nothing about his horn, bugle, or reed and I am not going to ask.

2 note, non-labeled horn? This is news to me. Did Harley have Yoder remove their name? With Dave I think one note will be fine as he's not the kind of guy that toots his own horn. But, now that he'll have a new bulb and a fully reloaded horn, that may change.

DAVE HENNESEY:

YOUR HORN ARRIVED AS DESCRIBED WITH ITS FRACTURED BULB. IT HAS NOW BEEN REPAIRED AND TOOTS AS INTENDED.

BE AWARE, THIS HORN IS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL TYPE YODER HORN
USED ON THE "HUMMER" MODEL. IT IS THE "GOOSE HORN" MODEL AND HAS THE ONE NOTE REED. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THE INSIDE LIP OF THE BUGLE END, YOU WILL SEE THIS MOLDED INTO THE BUGLE LIP.
THE GOOSE HORN MODEL WAS/IS THE SAME IN ALL RESPECTS EXCEPT FOR THE ONE NOTE REED AND THE MOLDED LABEL IN CONTRAST TO
THE MORE EXPENSIVE (ABOUT 50 CENTS) 2 NOTE, NON LABELED YODER MODEL.

THIS USELESS INFORMATION NOW SAID, YOUR HORN IS READY TO RETURN IN ALL ITS GLORY TO BE USED TO ANNOUNCE YOUR ARRIVAL WHENEVER, WHEREVER. ON THE DOWNSIDE, WITH THE ONE NOTE TOOT, EVERYONE WILL KNOW YOU HAVE THE CHEAP SKATE YODER MODEL.
YOUR HORN WILL ARRIVE JUST AFTER YOU RETURN FROM ITALY.
