Her expression on that gorgeous fresh face, framed by her hair so obviously tangled by the wind... Damn! Where did those days go?

Beer can is alum. with part of a tab sticking up on top. So, it isn't a pull tab. That makes it early to mid 80"s at the oldest.

Those aren't "colorized" photos. They are from 4X5 inch Kodachrome transparencies. They're positives direct from the camera.

The last big bike by Floyd Clymer to wear the Indian logo is the most mysterious. Only one prototype was made, shown below. This was a Norton 750 in an Italjet frame (a bit of a copy of the famous Norton Featherbed frame apparently). The disc brakes are Campagnolo, cable operated. The same Italjet fenders seen on the Horex-Indian and with a BMW headlamp (my 1970 Italian Laverda had one), and a custom fuel tank. A beautiful sports bike.
