This is an old photo of my great grandfather (center with the mustache) taken in Crown Point, IN. Apparently he wasn't racing but was just a spectator. Anyway, I'm trying to date the picture by identifying the Pope motor cycle. My great grandfather died in 1914. The motor cycle in the photo (#11) looks a lot like the Popes I found online that were produced between 1911-1914. The Pope in the 1913 vintage ad looks very similar to the motor cycle in my photo. Can anyone date the motor cycle?
P.S. I posted this photo earlier but at the time I didn't realize that was my great grandfather in picture!
