A little history behind Indian - Indian Motorcycles were built between 1901 & 1953 when they went bankrupt but in 2011 the brand was bought by Polaris Industries & they currently sell a range of 5 new Indian bikes.The 741b was built from 1942 & used by the US Army & overseas by Commonwealth forces under the lend lease program.Maybe the most distinctive feature of the Indians was the "suicide shift" gearstick,Indian motorcycles would be rare in Ireland,maybe some were bought during the Celtic Tiger??I remember seeing two at a Wall of Death show a few years ago in Cork.
A few shots of the kit,
More soon hopefully,
I might get some model time at the weekend.
