Harley-Davidson Ephemera and Homemade Model Motorbike With Sidecar

1923-1929. Comprising one photographic negative, two Harley-Davidson manuals, and numerous ephemera, concerning the purchase and payment of a Harley-Davidson motorbike by “John Frederick Hazard” from 1923 to 1929. Collection includes a homemade model of a Harley-Davidson with sidecar, 11.5 x 7 x 4.5cm. Old folds and slight foxing to ephemera; paint chips, scratches and rust to model.

John F. Hazard of Remly Street, Lakemba, NSW, would have been one of the early owners of a Harley-Davidson motorike in Australia during the 1920s, as shown in the photographic negative illustrated below. A “window blind and spring roller maker of every description” (as per his business card), Hazard purchased his circa 1923 twin model Harley-Davidson from Bennett & Wood Ltd, 284 Pitt Street, Sydney, and had it serviced by Belmore Motor Engineering Works, Canterbury Road & Drummond Street. The collection includes the manuals: Instruction Book for Harley-Davidson Big Twins Sidecars and Parcelcars (c1920), and Harley-Davidson Rider’s Hand Book: Twin Models (1926).

It seems more than likely Hazard made a model of his own motorbike, as he would have had the skills and access to the materials from his blind making business.
