    Wait....wut? That's fabulous....oh wait....it's another Indian re-tread of a British icon. Seems crazy that they fought a war to free themselves of the Brits and seems to badly want to be British.

    In the old days pretty much the only difference was the tank badge,....generally, roughly speaking but they were great,......never owned a British bike but rode one quite a lot, an AJS 500 Single

    1973 my first street bike at 18 was this 68 BSA originally a lightning. Can you tell by my sportster tank I wanted it to be a Harley LOL following year I was on a 71 superglide. They had the rep for electrical issues but for the time I owned mine it was a trouble free bike 360A2F64-375D-4E19-8762-A40487270322.jpeg 360A2F64-375D-4E19-8762-A40487270322.jpeg
