Cincinnati is where he bought his '27 JD.
    Steve, Ravine street and Straight would have tested the power of your Dad's JD. They are two of the steepest streets in Cincinnati.

    Dad used to laugh telling me how he would dress in his ROTC uniform, prowl Burnet Woods looking for steaming car windows and shine his spot light into the cars. now that would land him in jail or worse for impersonating. back then it was considered clean fun and likely more annoying than anything else. i am looking at the enamel "Ravine St." sign as i write this... Dad said a car hit the sign post, knocked the sign to the ground and he liberated it...

History is a fascinating thing and I think Sidecar, and Mr. Big have done a great service to us by posting these pictures that have anomalies, and misinformation that may have slid by in another publication that didn't have the scrutiny that CAIMAG has.

    Also, the right picture was taken in front of Henderson Motorccle Sales, the LA henderson dealer. It was run by Tennant Lee.

    These are pics for Clark

    photograph of the Jim Clark Cycles Baseball Team. R.L. "Jim" Clark was an Indian and Evans motorcycle dealer from Wilwaukee, Wisconsin. The player on the bottom left is wearing a Indian Cycles uniform. All the players have an Indian patch on their sleeve. In the 1922 edition of Motorcycle Illustrated it is noted that Jim Clark's baseball team participated in the Gypsy Tour at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin with Captain Ray Sood.

    Great information, badger34. It's enthusiasts like yourself, and sidecar that do the research, and tireless digging that peel away the fog of lost history. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    Great addition Badger, any info and correction are appreciated. This site had the pic of Clark's shop but was to small to enlarge. Thanks again.
