Buying Them Motorcycles in 1917

From the May 21, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Sawyer & Sons have been extra busy the past few days selling motorcycles.  Saturday, Elmer Reese bought the four-cylinder Henderson machine and is the first owner of a four-cylinder Henderson in DeKalb.

"The day before George Bacon of Kingston purchased an Indian.  Yesterday Paul O'Shatto of Sandwich came up here and took home one of the Excelsior machines and the east end men says that business gives the promise of being good every day this week."
