That's amazing to see a Durant on the HAMB a few posts before.. We had a 1929 Durant when I was young. That little fella in the picture is yours truly. It wasn't a Hot Rod but probably contributed to my love for cars. I remember going with my Dad to pick up the bumpers after he had them re-chromed. This picture was taken at our home in Detroit. The house in the background was our neighbors. Last year when I drove by the old neighborhood, the neighbors house was gone and just a grass lot. The neighbors teenage girl used to baby sit me & my sister. She was a playboy bunny but I didn't have a clue at the time what that was.
To bad it’s a Harley if she had an Indian she would only need to kick it once....
Indian Indian made of Tin, ride it out and push it in!

I'm starting to want one of those big Imperials!
I don’t think I agree with you. The guy who owns this one has had it 76 years.... still only takes one kick.

I beat you by 30 minutes!!
A couple weeks ago I started wondering the same thing, and found that exact quote.
How about these wall of death riders!
I've been riding a '48 Harley panhead for many years and it starts with one kick - hot or cold- and idles. If they don't , there's something wrong with it! Back in the late '60s when so many guys were building choppers out of old Harleys, you know why they were always blipping the throttle ? because they wouldn't idle for more than a few seconds with out dyeing . Usually for the same reasons that made them hard to start.
I ride my old tank as much as I can . I’m the same way , cold a few “ strokes “ to get fuel into the cylinders , turn the ignition on and lay into it and she will rumble to the nice slow pace we all love to hear . When hot , turn the ignition on and climb aboard , lay into her and be sure to stroke all the way through , or you will be hobbling for a few days . If she don’t light , you didn’t talk nice to her and she is showing you no respect , you loose !
Great 1930's car footage and hilarious narration:
