    Is this an Armac next to the Indian?

    I think you're right about it being an Armac, Roger. The straight rigid fork isn't typical of an Armac, as most all of them seem to have a curved rigid fork, but who knows? Also, Armacs always seems to be fitted with the Sager fork attachment, but I've seen early Armac ads that show just the rigid fork. Bikes like the Armac, Raycycle, Detroit, Tornado are so rare and for me the most interesting of all motorcycles. Thanks for posting that picture.

    I expected you to answer.This popped up in iowa History pics.I agree the forks are usually curved but I found no other tank-frame-motor that looked like this.They were made 1905-1913 but finding a pic of one is tough.Maybe it is '12-'13 & I can't find pics of those years.

    I found this.1912 American Motorcycle Company.They used Armac,Yale & Thiem motorcycles,repainted & rebadged as American.So likely it is a 1912-'13 Armac as I was thinking.American founded in chicago 1910.Armac made in St.Paul Minn.
    This bike is at Barber museum.

    Again, thanks for that picture, Roger and I think it's great to have a discussion about the early DNA of our beloved old motorcycle hobby. The Indian is a 1913 at the earliest so the Armac could be one of the last of the line. Armac was never a high production bike so AMC may have done whatever was necessary to sell a product, and use up inventory. These pictures are like a time machine.

    Thanx Badger & Sidecar for the Armac info.Interesting Armac was made in Chicago & Barber Museum says St Paul on their facebook page.
