    I did, thank you! That was Carl who brought his Pierce motorcycle out this year and I did in fact get the opportunity to speak with him. Thanks for the heads up.. it worked out great. Also, the Holiday Excursion is a terrific event.

    Pretty sure I can get you one but I don’t know what to charge you! Haha! I will check this weekend. I am helping a friend clear out a lot of early, early parts. By the way I think we already connected over a V8 manifold a couple/ few months back.

    I believe the correct magneto is a “Herz” as i’ve only seen this type if mag on Pierce singles. Thanks for the help!

    These are fantastic when done. I have been up close on one lately and it’s stunning. Do a little research on which magneto you need. I may be able help source one.

    Wonderful and good luck with it. If you get a chance check out the So Cal chapter facebook page. The IMS motorcycle show was this weekend and there was a fantastic Pierce single there, I took several photo's of it. There on the facebook page :-) Also there is a guy who rides one every year at the Pasadena HCCA run, which is coming up in Dec, he is almost always there riding it around, I would try to make it if I was you .

    Wow, that's a serious project to undertake! Good for you and good luck. My suggestion is to be very patient and persistent, keep good notes and build a network. You will be surprised at what may turn up.

    Not much history unfortunately. It was pulled from a property that was getting rehabbed when it was offered to him. There was no opportunity to speak with the old owner or dig for other parts.

    Did the Mass owner have any history or background details on the Pierce?

    started a topic 1913-ish Pierce Single project

    1913-ish Pierce Single project

    After several months, my Pierce Single frame has finally arrived safely to my garage in California. This frame was discovered by a friend of mine who found it while traveling through Massachusetts. My plans are to repair the obvious rust damage, and to track down a good Pierce single cylinder motor.

    I am very new to antique motorcycles so I expect this will be a learning experience for me. The bike is in extremely rough condition but thankfully no worse than I had expected.

    I am guessing that it is a 1913 model based on the serial number and what I have learned about the year/model differences, but please correct me if this does not sound accurate.

    I’m sure I’ll have plenty of questions moving forward, but I’ll also post more photos here as I make progress!
