Nice any history with the pic and bike ?
Thanks. All I know is, it was in a barn or some sort of building in Saskatchewan for a long long time. A gentleman in British Columbia bought it, had it for a while, then sold it to me. The pic was taken in front of the shed of the guy I bought it from. You can click on my sig line to see my story about it on the AMCA forum.
I guess some Indians were assembled in Canada back in the teens. The parts were made in Springfield Mass., shipped to Ontario I believe, and assembled there. This may be one of them, there is no way to tell as far as I know.
Curvy, thanks for posting those pictures from Dodge City. I considered going, and ended up not. Now I wish I had. Do you know what year that Indian is? I'm guessing around '14 or '15? The reason I ask, it has the stops for the rear stand located a few inches forward of the axle on the swing-arm, like my '16 does. I'm trying to figure out what years that was used. The Museum in Anamosa, IA has a '13 that's configured that way, and a '15 that is not. Seems to be a mystery.
Here's a picture of the '13 at Anamosa. Sorry for the poor quality.
It's a 14 Kevin.
Curvy, you beat me to posting DC 300 pics. I guess I had better stop loafing
I'm told this is a "daily rider" that is going into the shop for some needed repairs.
When H-D made cool singles. OHV ,good, power, still lost out in the market place to the twins.
Notice the tag on the far left of the info plate. This , to me, was the most impressive part of H-D's museum. Fully 75% of the bikes on display are un-restored.
after Willy g did the disastrous design of the '71 H-D superglide, merging
a FLH with a sportster front end, He had created the "boat tail". Late '72
the motor company had a clue, followed what the bikers were already doing
and replaced the fiberglass rear with a sportster rear fender. I installed my
own "anti thief" devise. A stock, still available at you local dealer, tank shift.
included is an H-D rocker clutch as well. have rode this machine for many
moons with no problems not fixable on the side of the road with a rock.
Same machine ADV extraordinaire Dave Barr rode around the world as well.
reference only.. "midnight express"
..with 80's anti theft protection over the counter stock FLH H -D tank shifter..
