Indian Scout 1927 600cc V-twin "for Sale"
« on: October 15, 2011, 10:54:04 PM »
After WW I the Indian factory decided it was time to market a somewhat lighter model than the 1000cc Powerplus.
The new model was labelled “Scout” and it created a sensation when brought out in 1920.
The strong points of the new design were easy handling, lightness, ample power for the 1920s roads and unbeatable reliability.
The new middleweight was also appealing to the prospective motorcyclists who were put off by the usual heavyweight big twins.
The Scout features a semi-unit construction power plant with a 3 –speed transmission bolted on to it.
Primary drive is by a set of helical gears that are enclosed in a cast aluminium cover and run in an oil bath.
The clutch is foot-controlled.
Some of the new features for 1927 were: bigger mudguards, improved muffler ( the factory claimed a 50% reduction in exhaust sound), valve release through petrol tank , new foot brake lever and battery box.

  -€21000,-
