This is a perfectly restored example of this fine Indian product from WWII. This particular 1941 Indian Scout 741 was built up by Bob Stark of Starklight Cycles, Riverside CA. The original owner brought a New-Old-Stock 741 Scout engine (date of manufacture, 1943) to Stark still in the wooden crate that the Army had warehoused it in. He asked Stark to build a 741 Model Military Scout around the new engine using as many NOS parts as possible. When the present owner purchased the bike he was told it was approximately 15 years old at that time and the speedometer showed only 525 miles on the engine. The present owner has had it for several years and only ridden it a few times, on short rides.
Perfectly painted with a glossy olive drab and black trim. Not a standard military paint scheme (it’s better looking).
Excellent original metal.
No chrome available on this model.
Runs great and is very reliable. This fine 1941 Indian Scout 741 has safely cruised Pacific Coast Highway in SoCal on nice Sunday afternoons. The original handlebar will go as additional equipment with the machine. The original was replaced with a higher handlebar to clear the 6’ 3” present owner’s knees but the original could easily be but back into service.
