This was completely rebuilt by previous owner in PA from an original bike and not a miss match of parts. Frame and forks repainted not powder coated. All original tin ware including one year only front fender and tanks re soldered. All chrome was re done with some extra items being chromed. Engine completely rebuilt including Babbitt’s done by Pittsburgh Crank. NOS pistons, rings, valves, guides, springs and collets all purchased from Bob’s Indian. Transmission rebuilt and new clutch fitted purchased from Roy Davies through Bob’s. No visible welds on cases. Rebuilt generator/distributor with electronic voltage regulator purchased from Roy Davies. Original Amp and oil pressure gauges rebuilt by Kevin Flannigan. Original correct 130 mph Corbin with max mph trip and odometer trip rebuilt by Speedo Rat (Max mph trip probably means this may have been a Highway Patrol bike in its earlier life) and was set to the original mileage. Original speedometer cable and drive with proper woven cover on cable done by Bruce Linsley. Original Moto Lamp. The original ignition switch part number 1841002 is fitted. Number stamped on rear. Original Autolite horn rebuilt. Original and proper Scheblar DLX 124 rebuilt by owner. Original owner put about 1000 miles on bike before selling it to me in 2008.
I rebuilt the wheels using brushed stainless steel spokes. I got brake shoes bonded over size and after skimming both brake drums (020†off front and 012†off rear) I machined brake shoes to fit leaving 020†clearance. The brakes now work well with a good feel. I fitted the heater pipes to manifold and got the original exhaust manifold proper enamel coated. I also fitted the proper tool box purchase from Greer’s. (1940 only had the tool box mounted in this position and painted black irrespective of the colour of the bike) The bike runs really well and rides really well. No smoking or rattles, shifts and pulls really well with no slipping on clutch. Bike starts first or second kick hot or cold. Oil pressure is 50 psi and settles back to 45 psi when hot. I enclose a short video of the bike being started from cold and watch carefully no hint of smoke from exhaust. I was told by late Indian 4 expert Dave Rocky Crosmere that this can be adjusted back to run at about 30 psi when hot. Bike is charging and all lights, brake light and horn working properly. I fitted a stainless steel drip tray underneath carb. This is very discreet and can easily be removed for showing the bike. This was from advice from the Indian 4 Club. I have never showed this bike but it should score highly. A few small items such as clutch and brake linkages, timing cover and oil breather have been chromed and these should be black and cad plated. I have only put about 500 miles on the bike. I have paperwork tracing the bike back to 1991 and this confirms it was a complete bike traceable by engine and frame numbers on paperwork. All recites for all work from previous owner.
