Check out this photo. Interesting 1894 in the center of the photo. I had an 1866 one time that letter as rifle with Carbine Trim. I wonder if this 1894 letters the same way.

That’s a cool picture. Are we sure that’s not a Marlin? Something about it just doesn’t look right. Is he holding a Savage 99?

Also, did you notice the ghostly image in the window behind him?

Nice pair, from what I can make out.

A Savage for sure, but what’s the bike? Pre-WW I from its looks.

As for the ’94…doesn’t look like a Marlin to me.

Does appear to be a 26″ carbine in front of the trike. I agree he seems to be holding a Savage 99.

Almost looks like an 1894 musket with the wood and magazine cut leaving the rear barrel band and some sort of band holding the magazine tube to the barrel at the muzzle.

I’m thinking an early J or JD Harley.

The motorcycle id 1926 JD Harley Davidson with touring side car. The rifle he is holding is a Savage 99. It is the model 1894 rifle with Carbine trim that got my curiosity.

If I had to guess, the Model 1894 is a carbine with a rifle barrel added. The front band is installed at the original 20″ location and though sketchy it appears to have a heavier than normal barrel and a rifle buttstock as well. Drive them nuts at gunshows for sure. JMHO.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I’ve ridden old HDs and Indians since the 60s and never have paid any attention to models, can’t even figure out half the time what I’m riding…a good reason that I shouldn’t comment on model ID Wink…ThanX for ID’ing that HD correctly, Road King and Gobbler! I’d post a photo of the last 49 Panhead that left the barn if I could figure out how to post photos, now that my go-to PhotoBucket has become an extortionist company…

A 1949 Pan would be a first year Hydra-Glide. Very nice.

Never one to take things on faith, curiosity getting the better, tried assembling a 1894 carbine forearm and band on a 1894 rifle with a standard round barrel.  It doesnt quite work so well. 

  • If you use the carbine wood and magazine tube, the inlet for the barrel in the carbine forearm stock would require some wood removal expand the width of the barrel inlet, a round barrel is just too big, not even close to getting the magazine tube to line up parallel to the barrel.  Also, the barrel diameter is too large to fit into the recess or step in the barrel band to receive the barrel.  Even with the barrel step metal removed from the inside of the carbine barrel band the overall inside diameter is 12/1000″ too narrow (top to bottom) to fit over a barrel and rifle forearm. 
  • Taking a second look it does look like a carbine forearm–may be possible to trim down the inlet for the barrel substantially to allow it to accept a round rifle barrel but are still left with with the dilemma of fitting the rear carbine band.    
  • The carbine front barrel band will not accept the larger diameter of a rifle barrel.  Not physically possible.

The old boy could have trimmed down a carbine forearm to fit the rifle barrel, modified the barrel band, or used a pair of hose clamps to hold it together, who knows, but fun to speculate.
