This 1938 Indian Four motorcycle is a classic example of Indian’s best model. This bike was purchased at the Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle auction in 2019. This Indian Four is a fully and correctly restored motorcycle. It is an excellent restoration with detail to all things Indian. The bike is flawless except for a couple of road dings. There are no signs of welding on the cases or other damage. It does have a few thousand miles on her since the restoration.
The bike was never started after purchase and has been residing in a climate-controlled garage. The bike was serviced in June of 2020 and fired right up on the first ignition kick. Check out the video!
