another version of a delivery sidecar, or as they were also refereed to, a side-van.

After a week of internet searching and e-mailing folks in the know, we finally have a an ID with 98% certainty that it is a early-mid 1920's factory built Indian model 301 Delivery side-van!! And its pretty much 100% original.

Did anyone hint at the value? I'll bet it's worth a lot.

No one has any idea on value. In fact can't find anyone who has ever seen one, not even the gentleman who has written 4-5 books on Indian motorcycles. Production numbers were usually quite low for these side-vans. Some years Harley only made 75-80 of them. Hard to say how many of these are actually still around and complete. With no comparisons....hard to say as to its value. Best guess is whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

If that's the case I could go $100

Wonder what would happen if you send pics to Barber and other museums. Years ago on a trip I stopped by a museum in ... where the hell was it .... the Pioneer Museum or something and it was full of old vehicles. This would fit right in. Aviation Museum (of some name) in the Finger Lakes area had bikes also. Must be a bunch of them.

Found the place, it's in a little town in Nebraska.

I visited Harold Warp's Pioneer Village on a family trip , in a F-100 with slide-in camper , back in 1968.
The museum in the finger Lakes is The Glenn Curtiss Museum. Glenn built this.


V-8 powered , ran 106 mph on the sands of Ormond Beach, Fl. in 1906 !

Thanks, that's the one. The Curtis Museum had some amazing stuff on display ... one smart cookie he was!
