Buy one of these and just build your own Indian clone.   These are really sweet motors.

The new Indians seem far more retro than any of the new Harleys, and they are looking for a small, high quality, niche market, which I do hope they will find.  Very pleasant to look at these fine bikes.

Google Kiwi Indian. Aparently, the guy is a New Zealand ex pat who now resides in the US. They restore old Indians for resale. They have some pretty bikes.

Again? How many times are they going to breath life into that make? Kudos to the folks that won't let it die! Grandad ran those until he switched to BMW's when Indian folded the fist time, loved 'em all.

the ride tests i've read so far indicate good things. why not go indian? who needs a hummer or an escalade? same principle. probably won't have to wrench every 50 miles!

Actually, Royal Enfield WAS Indian from 1954 to 1960.
All the Indian motorcycles during that period were Royal Enfields, including the Chief.
Home of the ACE Fireball 535 Bullet,  and the Joe Mondello Signature cylinder head for the Bullet.
