1912 Indian and 1910 Marsh Metz Pictures

Add Your Photos!

Thanks to Elizabeth Bowers for this picture of her three great uncles.  They are John William ‘Jack’, Percy, and Henry ‘Harry’ Bowers, born in England but photo was taken in Trenton, New Jersey. And thanks also to Leon for identifying the bikes: "Yes the bike on the right is an Indian – let’s say 1912. The Scout didn’t appear until 1920. The bike on the left is not a Pope but a Marsh Metz (or “M M”) – the vertical engine started in 1910, so it’s probably 1910-11.  The bike in the middle is tricky, but I’d be 90% certain it is an Excelsior (the American kind). You can see the belt rim on the back wheel, the long tool box behind the seat tube of the frame, and the straight tubes that make up both the main front fork and the leading link suspension."
