i dont have any pics, but i would like to see some also. thats one thing i appreciate about a lot of the early racing bikes, they were not mass produced in factories but built one at a time by master craftsmen or in little mom and pop shops. new york was a hotbed for racers with quite a few famous builders turning out low production bikes

All those huge belts to run the machinery...there use to be factories that had belts going through floors to machinery above and below.

I see that you noticed the same thing--was wondering just how big a motor or hit and miss was running the line shaft
