1927 Indian Bandit Chaser

During Prohibition, the NYPD found themselves outgunned by the Mob and other bootleggers. Their answer was to outfit their patrolman with automatic shotguns and armored motorcycles. Indian produced 5 such motorcycles with bullet proof shielding to protect rider and passenger. Harley later came out with their own prototype, improving on the original Indian design.

Well, I don't remember that, but I do remember NYPD motor cops riding Indians with sidecars in the Bronx in the early 50's.
