1918 Indian Twin Board-track Racer

This red classic 1918 Indian motorbike, was recently restored to original specifications.

With original board track racers exceedingly rare and in high demand today, the motorcycle offered here deserves attention.

The current owner purchased the disassembled machine, which he reports was 85% complete, and reassembled it, careful to maintain all un-restored components in original condition.
