So my parents had told me about my grandfather's love for his Indian and that he had raced it in Ohio during the late 30s and early 40s... but, my dad and his father had a major falling out and my dad never talked about him much in detail. By the time they made up near the end of Grandpa's life and I got to know the man, I never got to ask him about his motorcycling days. My parents recently found these old pictures of Grandpa on his Indian... I can only guess that this photo was taken sometime in the early 40s in Ohio... the picture with the lake is Springfield Lake near Akron, OH. I know pretty vague, right. Are there any vintage bike experts out there who might be able to identify model and year from the photos... better yet, can anyone identify the venue of the race with the grand stands in the background of the 3rd photo? Thanks for any help.
