Indian Motorcycles: In The 1950s And Today

A contributor to the photography blog Shorpy.com posted a photo taken in the 1950s of her father posing on his Indian Motorcycle. You can get a closer look at the photo on the Shorpy.com site.

We are not sure what year this bike was made. Can you identify it?

Indian Motorcycles were originally introduced in 1901 as first American motorcycle brand. Several attempts to revive the Indian name have been tried recently with mixed success.

Indian recently re-entered production, with the first 2009 Chief rolling off production line last July from Indian's plant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
