Not sure, if anyone can help out with identification that would be great! There are other photos of the same bike (plus a different bike) if you search on ' Arthur Pearce '.

Mavis and Cyril (Jack) Suckling – brother and sister

Circa 1930

"Jack was my Grandad. Of course I only remember him as an old man. So to see him here on a Harley and looking so young...well, he seems a different person. This photo provokes questions. Is Jack taking his sister for a spin or is this just staged for a photo. Did my Grandad really ride a Harley?" - Contributor's note
