This is a historic Indian 101 Scout, 37 inch, that appears to be one of the last engines built. Current owner has owned this Indian 101 Scout for 30-some years. It was in a dismantled state when he purchased it.
It was 2015 when he began the restoration, completing it late 2016, keeping the motorbike as close to the original using as many of the original components as possible.
From cold the engine will normally start 2nd kick with spark retarded. Once warmed up it runs and idles very well.
This is a great motorcycle to ride and it will give many miles of enjoyment to the new owner. What you see here is what you get, a well restored part of Indian Motorcycle history!
