Harvey Donaldson

A bit of trivia concerning Harvey Donaldson. Found this at a motorcycle swap meet a couple of years ago. (i am not a motor cycle person I went with a friend who is) A vendor had boxes full of old MC registrations. I just happened to spot the name and for $5 I owned it. I was unsure if it was the same Harvey Donaldson. It was. Not exactly a cartridge post but certainly a cartridge person. Harvey would have been about 38 or 39 at the time he was registering this new 1920 Harley-Davidson. I am told the serial # is correct for a new '20 vintage bike.


If this is outside the limits of the forum delete it.

For those wondering, Harvey Donaldson was the creator of the .219 Donaldson Wasp, which is considered the “grandfather of bench-rest cartridges”.
