Bootz & Lynn Motorcycle Shop ~ Des Moines, Iowa ~ Indian / Harley Davidson Parts and Accessories ~ 1949

This is a quality reprint of a dealer’s catalogue from 1949.   During the years following WWII the war continued to impact on the market.  This document provides a snapshot of what returning veterans were experiencing in the motorcycle world.  Both Harley and Indian parts are listed in addition to assesories.  It is the same organization that put out the 1945 cataloge we have also listed.

From the catalogue:


Meet the partnership of Bootz & Lynn. Mr. Lynn, 34, has been associated with me since 1934. He handles all the mechanical work and service. He enjoys turning out fine rebuilt jobs, and operating our new shop machinery. Your troubles are over when he handles your mechanical problems. Read the back pages for more data on this work.

 Some motorcycle parts are higher this year; but on many we have reduced prices, and also on many accessories. We do not look for lower prices on parts in the near future, but expect that accessory items will be lower. When they are, we will also reduce prices, as we bill them at whatever the prevailing prices are, whether higher or lower.

 During Spring and Summer, we are busy and it isn't always possible to answer every inquiry for parts not obtainable. All orders are given prompt attention, also inquiries with stamp. We usually fill all orders the same day received.

 We are now located in our New Motorcycle store, which is easy to locate and get to. Our modern service department can take care of your motorcycle promptly. When you are around this way, come in and see us.
