This 1960s/70s Kiddie Ride is identified as an Indian Motorcycle Ride. Purchased at Mecum auction a few years back, it is very clean and operates nicely. The paint and mechanism are all nicely done. This collectible is a great man cave prize for the discerning investor. We found the info below on a Google search.
This is an original Indian Motorcycle coin operated (25 cents) kiddie ride. Not a ‘converted’ motorcycle. Original stationary ride from the 60s / 70s. My Dad is a vintage motor – scooter restorer (collection in the Los Angeles Peterson Museum 2012) and restored/refurbished this for my son when he was about 4. My son is now grown out of it and I don’t have space to store. Great for kids 3-8 years old. I have pictures of the restoration process. As you can see this Indian ride has an artificial INDIAN engine with ‘SPEEDY’ side-covers and a screw in spark plug – great condition! Works perfectly with coin use or manual activation. Has a cassette music player in it that does work but not the best sound. Music can be turned on or off. Two keys – lock both the music and coin areas. Plugs into standard 110V home outlet. Included this not-so-great video – but you can hear the music and see the motion. Looks like it’s going over the hoops.
Ready for pickup anytime – Southern California / Orange County area (Costa Mesa)
Paint is in excellent shape with just a few storage scratches
Great condition. Seems all original.
This is an electrical motored operation and it works well. Place a quarter in the slot and the machine starts and plays music for about 2 minutes. Timing of ride and music can be changed.
