    Gerry could be contentious, but that was more with the written word. In person, he was a gentleman, with the subtlety, wit, and intelligence of an interesting person. I wish I had known him better....

    I would say the bike is a 1925 (at the earliest) Indian Big Chief due to the 385 balloon tires. I had a 1924 Big Chief and loved those wide handlebars.

    I'm happy for you, Steve. I know you have put a lot of thought and work into that bike so you deserve to enjoy the result. I really like the look of the early fenders with the streamlined tank. First...

    My guess is 1914 on the Indian due to the home-made fender skirts. 1915 was the first year for front fender valances. . . . Could also be a 1913:)

    I have read that Reading Standard bought up the Cyclone inventory, and raced their own version of it after WW1 (with little success). R-S, Yale, and Thor are probably the most unworthy victims of the...

    Having said that, your emblems look fantastic, Lipdog and I wouldn't change a thing. It's like the difference between what a dog can smell, and what a fox can smell:)

    Toney Watson was probably one of the most knowledgeable post war Indian judges in the AMCA, if not the world, (along with Robin Markey, and about 5 or 6 others). He felt that Testor's red was very...

    A picture of the center profile of the hub would give some clues. Schwinn changed their hubs to Timken tapered roller bearing in 1924 so the profile of the Hen/Ex hub looks like an 'hour glass'. The...
