Interesting motorcycles, not XS650

If I was lucky enough to have something like that at that age I would probably not be here today!

Us kids had around 25 acres of a hilly vacant lot right next to our house to play in. That little Indian would have been beat to death in short order doing hill climbs!
Continuing the steam-powered theme (I wuz already going to post this) found there was a British manufactured steamer, the Haleson, made 1903-1914 by William Hale of Bristol. The steam drove a 200cc side-valve engine. Paraffin (kerosene) fuel. With steam engines providing full torque from zero revs, it neither had nor needed clutch or gearbox. Looks like something you could ride? But perhaps not in traffic - I think that's a front rim brake.
