We all know that when you ride an Indian you're inevitably going to end up in a conversation with a total stranger on the footpath or gas station. Often they tell you that their dad or grandfather used to ride one and they like the look of your bike, but they don't actually know much more than that. Today was different. An elderly gentleman (mid 90s) stopped to talk and he was/is the real deal. He bought a 1927 Scout when he was just 16 years old, and he still has it. Before long we found ourselves riding up his driveway and he pushes back the shed door. Well inside was not one, but two vintage Indians. The 1927 he mentioned, and behind it another bike, a 1924 scout. They are quite tidy, though it looks like they haven't moved for a few years. He is quick to point out that they were both running very well when he parked them. He showed me around his workshop and he showed me a few of the bits and pieces that he had built for his bikes. A talented man, honestly it felt like it could have been Burt's shed. Over against one wall he even had a complete 1940s crate engine, take a look at the poster to see how much he paid for it! Wow what an afternoon. We will be keeping in contact.
