Local hardware acquaintance dug this out. He says this is his Father on his Knuck. Pa

Just posting what I was told. I really can't tell though. If ya save and zoom in on it, it doesn't reveal much for identity.

There sure is a strong resemblance to Mr McQueen. Pa posted this image on Iron Motors Tech also. No one picked out the Panhead ID there. I'm humbled that I missed it.

On another forum, other than here and IMT, another member, basically says it is a Knuckle from his take on a zoom in.

Great to see ya poppin in John. For those of you who don't already know it, John has a great forum at IMT http://www.knucklenutz.com/tech/ . I've personally been a proud member of it since John put it together. You can even talk prices there ! Great list of topic categories too. I luv the humor one. Pa

The photo degrades pretty fast at higher resolutions, but it sure looks to me like a Knuck. When you zoom in on the guys face I'd say he is not Steve McQueen. The nose is too big.

Not to argue , but what proof can you offer that the bike is a Knucklehead ?

Look at the front rocker very close. I could be wrong but it sure looks KNUCKLE to me. I have photos of Steve McQueen with my buddy from Texas & at about that age he was riding swing arm Triumph's among many others. The time period is way off.
