Two 1910 Yales Pictures

Add Your Photos!

Very many thanks to Lynn Jones of the US for sending these superb pictures.  They show her grandfather and his cousin taken in 1906 with their motorcycles.  The first picture shows her great-uncle, Leslie Hamner, and was taken at a sawmill in Gibsland, Louisiana. The second picture is of her grandfather, Matthew Morgan Hamner, Sr. Many thanks to Max for the following clarification on the year of this picture (previously thought to be 1906): "If you look very closely at the Frame on each Yale you will see that the top frame tube drops down just after the head-stem casting, this was done to lower the frame and seat height, but was only ever offered for the 1910 Yale selling year , the very same year the first 6 ½ HP V-Twin Yale appeared also with the drop down frame , standard finish being gray with navy-blue pin-stripping. Because the Yale’s featured did not exist before 1910 nor did the photograph."
