Indian History


Recommended Posts

I am instrested in reading about the history of Indian, starting with the Springfield models. Do any of you guys know of a good internet resource? It would be nice if there was a listing of all the models for all production years. Thanks in advance for your help!

Here's a site with good info...

There's a lot of older info out there that is unpolluted by current Polaris propaganda

Just type in Indian motorcycle history & you will find Antique American enthusiast sites galore.

You in NC so you can not be to far from him. He is not to far from Charlotte. When I bought my 2012 Vintage from him I drove over a 1000 miles to pick it up. You boys are lucky to have somebody like that up yonder.

 

Mark@IndianMotorcycleCharlotte.com is his email. His shop is in Lowell, NC

Mark Moses and the Charlotte Dealership get a 10 on a 5 scale. Yes, they're that good.

I just watched a video on the link that chief doc 99 posted. It was board track racing at Daytona. It was awsome. Those guys were hauling ass! Film was from 1920. Official track speed was 212 K hr. / 131 mph. That's pretty good for a bicycle with a motor.. Thanks for sharing that link.

The Wall is where you could find me at the fairs when I was a little kid. I'd hang around there all day. Neat stuff! :Beer-Chug[1]:
