Pop Posted August 30, 2007 Share Posted August 30, 2007 "By John Wyckoff Motorcycle Product News April 2007 I am old enough to remember when Indian Motocycles were manufactured in Springfield, Mass. Even before there was a Harley-Davidson, there was Indian. I also remember when they went out of business. I believe that was in 1953. In its heyday, Indian was considered the most reliable motorcycle, won the most races and set the most records. We love to live with nostalgia. We were delighted when Anthony Hopkins stared in the movie The World's Fastest Indian. The film got rave reviews, and Mr. Hopkins showed his talent as a great actor, but ever since the original factory closed, the Indian name has been used, abused, dragged through the mud and trampled. Undaunted, the name seems to be impossible to kill. Now another company has surfaced. They own the name and have secured property to make the new Indian motorcycle in King's Mountain, North Carolina. Their claim is that the bikes will be available to ship sometime in '07. Any bets? " Pop is goin to play a little Baccarat tomorrow night at Foxwoods and I'll sure take the odds against the banker over the odds of KM in '07.
