Been Around the Block
Jack Hayes (Gunner Hayes) was my mother's eldest brother. He was born some time around 1925, the first of 13 children. His father (my grandfather) served in the trenches of The Great War as a machine gunner. Jack served in the Navy for 30 years, having signed on during WWII. He rose to the rank of WO4. There are many stories about him that I wish I had heard about while he was still living. He was a very colorful character. I still have most of our email correspondence.
Anyway, I do not know where or when this picture was taken. A surviving uncle said he had a 1927 and a 1929 Harley-Davidson. Clearly, this one is later. The jacket is likely a Schott Perfecto. Anyway, I love the picture and I love it more because it is my Uncle Jack!
Anybody here care to take a shot at the motorcycle ID?
