This is the classic cool video. I'm blown way by the site of so many Indian bikes here. I hope this event happens more and more. It warms my heart to see a rider group keeping it real. Thanks for the share.

My Aunt & Uncle just finished The Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run that started in Kittyhawk North Carolina and ended at the Santa Monica Pier, Ca. The participating bikes were all 1915 and older. There were a number of Indians, some of these may actually have been in that run. Here is a link to the Cannonball webpage: http://motorc...nnonball.com/

Ya, I thought this was especially cool. Just don't see that many Indians together at one time much.

I really liked what I saw. I too am not that much into motorcycles, but there were some very nice bikes in this video. Indian has been around a very long time and you really don't see many of them. I think it is remarkable that this many Indians were at the same place at the same time. I think this is totally awesome.

Wow, that is a very large number of unique bikes together. That is awesome!! There were some amazing motorcycles in there. I would think it would be hard to get that many together at one time. thanks!

Ya, it is weird. I was never really into bikes much...but about two years ago, I saw this old Indian at a local bike event, got to talking with the owner and became fascinated. Don't own one (yet ;-) ), but who knows...

Here are two sites I looked at with some good information...
www.indianmotorcycle.com
www.indianmotorbikes.com

And TerryO, thanks for the link. You hear a lot about Harley Davidson, but not as much about Indian.

Oh its a great machine every bit as good but not as popular as HD. At one time during the early 1900s they were the Ford & Chevy of the motorcycle world. Only two American motorcycle manufacturers survived the Great Depression, Harley-Davidson and Indian. The unofficial story goes something like this. When the US Army wanted them each to build a motorcycle with 45hp Indian did and HD didn't. Instead HD built one with 50hp and won the contract. HD then produced large numbers of motorcycles for the US Army in World War II and Indian did not. This didn't put them out of business at first but led to the selling of the company and it's eventually going out of business. Here is a link to their history.

I don't know anything about motorcycles, but I LOVE these. So retro and cool looking. Where can I find out more about these Indians?
