Old Indians


This 1908 Indian Torpedo Tank board track racer was displayed at the Legend of the Motorcycle show in Half Moon Bay, CA, in May, '08. That's right, it's 100 years old and in original condition. A true, unrestored "barn find", it won the Best of Show award.

The fact that it is "un-restored" is stunning. I could not believe it even ran. Impressive.

Old Indian motorcycles never die as this one demonstrates. Brought back to life after 40 years at Kiwi Motorcycles Riverside California 2010, this 1948 classic ticks over like a vintage clock.

What a stunning restoration. It seems like you'd need the limb independence of Neil Peart to be able to ride this monster. I'd have no trouble at all crashing it the first time out.
