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.

Those are wonderful photographs. Thanks for posting that.

Poor little girl - she has no neck!!
Yeah, I felt pretty bad about that so I got her an old purple dirt bike. I'd take a dirt bike over a neck any day. One day she'll inherit the old Datsun, too. The bike and the truck are both '71 models.
that is one hot pair of legs
Well, if Illustrations count too, I'll submit mine.
Yeah, all the illustration girls love Triumph.
