Motorcycling: Marco's early years
I found the negative for this pic. It’s from 1956; I’m about 5 1/2. It’s obvious the bug has already hit. Love that “Charley Brown” sweater. The bike is an early panhead, probably a 74 CI FL from the early ’50s. Any experts out there know for sure?
I originally thought this picture was from 1959, but when I found the negatives they were labeled 1957. Picture probably taken by my mom. Notice the neighbor mowing her lawn in her skirt. Bet it was a push mower, too.
These pics are from the same roll of film as the pic above. Notice the hand shifter on the left side of the tank. My foot is resting on the kickstarter in the second picture – it sure doesn’t reach the floorboard.
This pic was taken in the very early 1960s, possibly in 1960 itself. Dad and I took a camping trip down the California Coast to Big Sur. Different bike from that pictured above.
