This was my fathers and my first real restoration. It was a 14 time national award winner. Sorry its gone it was so much fun. More details after you guess.
Close my friend. Its actually a 1924 NER-A-CAR. It was the same year model Cannon Ball Baker rode down the top of a rail road rail while reading a news paper. It was geared toward women to get them to ride. It was an awesome bike 35 top speed in 7th gear. It was a wreck when it came to us rust welded with an I beam over the seat should be - we got the original seat with it. I was in 9th grade and formed the cowling, belly pan and muffler for the bike from templates a friend of my dads made from his.With alot of searching around on the net I belive it is a 1925 - NER-A-CAR. It was listed under Rare Motorcycles That Even Indiana Jones Couldn’t Find at (Motorcycle Center.Com)
Thanks my friend and yes I was very lucky to have the parents I had. Dads gone mom lives with us today. It was an awesome young life motorcycles and RC airplanes and trains but the bikes were tops. In 1976 dad and me rode an original Indian in line 4 cylinder- the brown color and a 1946 Indian Chief- fire engine red from Elyria OH to St Louis Mo to an AMC meet. It is something I will never forget although Dad made me ride the Chief some. Both had power to spare. I have a 1923 NER-A-CAR and all the parts to restore it some day and a 1942 Whizzer to restore also..Thats the story of my life, always close but no cigar! I would have loved to restore old bikes when I was growing up. You were very lucky.
