The 1962 picture is of Don and Leslie Pink and possibly their daughter. Don's dad started the Don Pink Harley Davidson dealership in Crotona, New York. I competed against Don at many motorcycle off road contests in the 1950's era. A wonderful time of my life, never to be forgotten.

Today this would get Mom and Dad imprisoned for endangering the welfare of a child.

Seating by Rubbermaid

The child seat appears to be made from a plastic dishpan, with suction cups holding it to the gas tank. Thank goodness for the windshield, so that baby doesn't have to eat bugs.
