The "Indian Banner" has nothing to do with Royal Enfield or the motorcycles that were imported into the US from RE that carried the "Indian" name back in the 1950's.

Near as I can tell, the "Indian Banner" was one of the post-Floyd Clymer
(who 'borrowed" the Indian trademark and sold it to Alan Newman,a attorney) ventures.
Newman imported imports made in the 1970's in Tiapey,Taiwan, or some similar place using the "Indian" logo.

I can't imagine why anyone would spend $4250 for one of these bikes unless they wanted to own an unofficial "Indian" offshoot that doesn't have spare parts available.


It was a 2 stroke dirt bike

+1  That bike has little value to anyone who actually knows the history of motorcycles.  I personally wouldn't spend more than $500 on it.  Mostly because it is damn near impossible to decipher who actually made these bikes, making it very hard to find parts.  As Arizoni mentioned, it's not even a real Indian.  It's more than likely a Taiwanese mini bike with Indian stickers on it.  At least when RE made Indian bikes, they had a licensed contract with Indian.

Arizoni is correct on that it's amazing the company sold almost 20,000 of those bikes 50cc and up.  ERC
