Dennis’ 1946 Indian Restoration–Near Delivery

We are putting the final touches on Dennis’ 1946 Indian before start-up and test-ride.

This has been an on-going project but we are near the end. The bike was delivered to us in crates that had been sitting for 20 years. It has come a long way.

Dennis O’s 1946 Indian Near Completion

Here’s another update on Dennis’ 1946 Indian.  It is getting close to being complete.  Dennis should be able to start enjoying his motorcycle soon.  For the complete story of this restoration visit our archived posts.

 

Highway Classics’ 1940 Flathead

This 1940 Flathead UL motor used to belong to a good friend of ours, Robert Dail.  He purchased it in 1970.  We originally re-built the engine in 1971.  It changed hands a few times and we were able to buy it back and are now rebuilding it again 40+ years later.  Here are some photos of the finished motor and a video of the initial start-up on our run-stand.

Scott’s Panhead Project Complete

Here is Scott’s completed “old school” chopper project.  He has owned this bike for many years and wanted it restored to its original look.  It is the same color as it was in the ’70s and has all its original parts.  To see the initial engine run click here.

Mike’s 1948 Indian Final Update

We finished Mike’s 1948 Indian.  It rode like a new one and he was very happy with the job.  We had it delivered to him by Arizona Motorcycle Towing (Michelle, the owner does a great job), and he is now riding and enjoying it.

Mike sent us this brief history of the bike.
