    Searching for Powerplus #72J426

    Does anyone know where 1917 Indian Powerplus serial #72J426 is now? It was stored in a barn in Oregon for many years. I have information about the original owner and a very nice photo.

    Thanks Eric, that's the information I was looking for. It's not a problem on my '13 Henderson - I just crank it! And it's a lot easier to start than my JD.

    I've heard that some KJs had problems with gearbox internals that weren't properly hardened, or kicker gears that stripped easily. Is this the case? Peter

    Rajah buddy seat

    Can anyone shed any light on these seats? Is this a JD era accessory? Is it a child's seat? It seems to mount in front of the rider's seat and be hinged to flip up.
