Most interesting from Bike Night- 6/13/19...

Bike Night is an institution around Milwaukee, home of the H-D, and on Thursdays seasonally at the H-D Museum, they have bike night. I usually go about a block away, to the
Iron Horse Hotel, where they have a themed bike night on Thursdays too. Last night was Ducatti night.
Never seen so many Ducs at one place- including dealerships!

But we went over to the H-D museum also last night for a bit, live music, lots of Harleys, etc.

But I remember sitting on the back box of one of these when I was 8 years old and having a policeman drive me around slowly in the Texas State Fair Grounds on one of these:



It's a 1964 model- this was all original too

It's got:
- Throttle on LEFT hand grip
- left foot clutch
- Right hand shifter, with R-N-1-2-3

I'm thinking since the the shifter was on the Rt. that they put the throttle on the left.

It ran great and sounded really cool, it was pretty quiet

Nice. My grandfather worked for the Bayonne PD for years maintaining their bikes and they had a bunch of the Servi Cars. He took me to the garage a few times and it was pretty amazing. I'm guessing this picture is from the late 60s.
