Family Vintage Motorcycle pics for Cee’s FFC

This week, Cee’s fun topic is ‘Bikes and Motorcycles’. These photos are from my family archives, and are over 80-years-old. I’ve shared these before, a couple of years ago, so some of you may remember them.

Here’s my dad and his big sister in Old Batavia Indonesia, probably around 1930. I think the motorcycle is a ‘New Henley’, made in Birmingham England. If you click on the image, it will enlarge and show you all the detail.

This very grainy pic one is of hubby’s uncle in suit and tie, posing in the backyard in front of the garage and the garden shed in England.

Of course the people here have all passed on, and I guess that the bikes are also long gone. I hope you enjoyed these two blasts from the past.

  1. These are two lovely photos. Lovely bikes, they were quite massive back in the day like they are today. The photos are still very clear, especially the first one. Thank you for sharing, Sylvia πŸ™‚

  2. What tremendous photos, Sylvia, the first one particularly. What an atmosphere it has. And that look of composure on big sister’s face – little brother put in his place in the rear.

  3. I did enjoy these motorcycle pictures from a time long gone by. Great fun – not the least to see how they dressed for biking (and yes, I know the to children weren’t exactly that). πŸ™‚

  4. I remember seeing this one bike at the local Wendy’s that resembled something out of the 40’s, Had the green that you would see on the old sherman tanks and the old dials, it was absolutely beautiful! Even more so than the widow maker super powerful motorbikes beside it πŸ˜€
