Oh my! I've seen old cycle cars on the road before. But never a radial triple car. An airplane engine, even down to how it's mounted.
I definitely don't see Vindians every day. Wouldn't be surprised if I don't see another.
That white Honda Dream reminds me of the white Honda Dream that Ann Margaret used to ride.
Ever seen a 1968 Indian Super Scout? The styling reminds me of the Boattail Sportster (which I also don't see every day), but this came first. 1940s Indian motorcycle technology meets innovative late '60s styling.
Isn't that a '48? I think Indian went out of business in '53. There have been a few attempts to revive the marque prior to Polaris but I doubt this beauty was one of them.
It was, more or less. The marque was revived then as American Indian Motorcycle Company, though a different revival still existed. Many of the parts were NOS, which explains the hardtail, hand shift, foot clutch arrangement, and probably the front brake as well.
More likely a one-off custom engine built from commonly available parts and copious quantities of engine-uity.
The cylinders and heads look to be right off a Beemer Airhead, same for the front cover.
My '95 MZ Skorpion tour
Some bikes on display at Red Rock HD.
Nice - are those yours? 70, 71, 72. Bought a 70 brand new, wish I still had it.
Thanks, yes they are mine.
The '70 XS-1 and '71 XS-1B were both purchased from their original owners who were both in their 70's and quitting riding.
The '72 XS-2 was a museum bike that was no longer being displayed due to a change in exhibits.
It took me a long time to find all 3 years, but I just love looking at them and riding them on occasion.
Another angle of the eldest one:
Egli Vincent. The owner is 80 years young and had a bit of trouble starting it. Notice the electric leg under the gearbox.
If you ever want to sell the 70 or hear of a nice on available - please let me know - again, very nice trio!
Not to rare - but you don't often see them, unless at a BMW event - 14K original miles, showroom condition
