Proper old stuff
I buy pretty much anything in print that relates to old custom H-Ds, so snapped up Alan Mayes' book 'Old School Choppers' off eBay a few years ago... super cheap.
I think he writes for The Horse magazine, and to be honest much of the book is of no interest to me. But there are a few gems in there, all from Dale Walksler's 'Wheels Through Time Museum'. (From the top) 1925 JDCB cutdown (described as a '24 JDCA in the book), 1928 JDH Two Cam, '37 UMG TT Special and early forties Knucklehead bitsa.
