Understand that this is one photo, it just takes three images to copy big enough to see, My Dad and I are three rows up from "Ohio. Aug." and I tried to box us in with a wipe off marker. I would have been 12 years old at the time, notice all of the neat 'vintage' bikes. Hope you enjoy..........

    My grandfather has one of these dated from the 40s in Iowa I believe. What was the Gypsy Tour?

    It was just a ride together where a bunch of riders all gathered a t one point and rode to another for a day of picnic, games and fun. Oh Yeah, I almost forgot some intake of "Adult Beverages" along with the aftermath of tomfoolery and highjinks associated with the same said intake.
    In this case the original small group gathered a a local Motorcycle Dealers place and as they rode toward the 'Point of Party' they picked up more riders and more bikes ending up with this group coming down the road at you.. :-)

    Yeah my grandfather's photo had a lot of old Harleys with side cars. He's not in the photo, and I cant identify anyone in it. It's pretty cool.

    Very cool, my Dad was a Harley guy. Him and my Mom moved up to Ohio from WV in 48. He always had a bike. Most likely he knew one or two of these guys.
