    Anyone got one?
    Anyone know where I could find one lurking inside a barn, hidden away and forgotten about years ago?

    Preferably an Indian.

    :cool:

    If you find one see if they've got a nice 45lv or 2000GT for me. ;)

    Good luck, those old rides are sweet.

    If you can't find one just get a Ural.;)

    That's a seriously tall order...

    I don't know how many military Indians there were in the first place? I think they mostly used 45" Harley WLAs, even a small batch of horizontally opposed HD twins (looked like a BMW clone). All highly prized by collectors, natch.

    How about something like a 70's HD FLH? Prices have gotten pretty reasonable (HD speaking, of course) of late, parts are pretty easy to get, they're really easy to work on, and once you've done a pile of work on it, you can actually RIDE it!

    However, I'll gladly take any Knuckle or Panhead you find in a barn off your hands!
