It appears that the HO scale models are illustrated in the links above. 

The truck resembles a Mack E Series built from 1936 to 1950.

I will let someone familiar with Hawgs provide the dates for the bikes.

Extended fork choppers didn't show up till the late 60's and were not all that popular untill the 1990's. It seems a bit of an odd choice. Personally, I would have gone with a stock bike with large and low profile tires as that would cover everything from the 1950's forward.

The truck is a nice addition but I would have loved to see some of their construction rigs. The E will look right at home next to the GHQ 344 logger.

yes, well, given that there are a dirth of motorcycles of ant vintage available ) save some lovely etched Vincent's I bought but have yet to assemble, I'll take the choppers.  and being a bike guy myself, I think reverse engineering a set to a more standard look won't be too hard.

Now where's a N Scale Pauly Sr. when I need him?
