pre 1909 Harley Davidson single belt drive

Above are some very old fotos torn out of a someones family album, If you look very close on the rear wheel you can see the belt/sprocket on the rear wheel. Always thought it interesting that the earliest bikes used leather belts, then bikes went to chains then back to modern flexible rubber belts to lessen the vibration n wear. If you found only the engine of this bike, theres a few folks making highest quality replacement parts to build the whole bike once again. The next foto was on the other side....looks like the old "our gang" little rascals.
