Default 1912 Harley and Some Correspondence

A friend has let me share these. The motorcycle was a 1912 single that his Uncle owned.

You are a real artist! That is some neat stuff.
I guess company's were no different back then than they are today. That letter is dated 1921 and says no parts available for a 1912 machine, only 9 years old!

The new catalog is from 1913-1921, it sounds like the only parts available are ones that might cross over?

Your painting really brings the photo to life.

Steve, the letter says they are ABLE to furnish any parts.
