This is the only picture I have of my Grandparent's motorcycle. They had several bikes since the 1920's, including a Harley with a sidecar that my Dad rode in as a child. I believe this is the last bike they had before coming to Canada.

I would certainly appreciate any help figuring out the make, year and model. I guess that I come by the love of motorcycles honestly!

My first experience on a motorcycle was in Holland back in 1969. My other Grandfather took me riding just about every sunny day he could while I was there with my parents for 3 weeks that summer. Riding along the top of dikes, through the small towns with their cobbled streets, and past windmills through north Holland is something I'll never forget.

Thanks for any information about this picture.
