By the look of the front forks it should be a Sunbeam of some sort.

I don't think that it's 'one of ours' - I came up with my ID based on the peculiar front engine plates and the cut-off drive to the dynamo which would have been there (and it isn't a Velocette !).

 

The crudely applied stars only seem to have been commonly applied by the British and Canadians to captured or requisitioned machines.

Indian Powerplus ? The bracket above the front mudguard (fender ?) looks like the leaf-spring mount used by Indian and the chairs are the correct type.

 

Apparently 60% of the motorcycles used by the US in Europe in 1917 - 18 were Indians.
