    Couple people want it. Wonder if it really will be paid for or someone is running it up. I hope it sells for that kinda money.

    I remember this bike, I was offered it by the gentleman in PA (not Otto Link) around 20 years ago, I believe. I did not have the $$ then to buy it. I found a much cheaper '41 Four with a side car that I bought instead.

    I checked my photos it was the same color combination but a 41 Four looked exactly like this 42 down to the chromed belt guard cover and front forks, I dug out the photos last night so I guess the seller on eBay is correct Otto Link did have more than a few Indian Fours and he painted and chromed them out all the same way! The guy that was selling it (Otto Link's friend) lived in Perkasie, PA. If my memory serves me he was selling two Fours at the time but when I got there there was only the 41 Four. I'll never forget the paint scheme and extra chroming, all I could think about was returning it to stock colors and de-chroming it.

    I believe on the Cross Country Chase that just took place there was either this Four or another of Otto's Fours that competed in the run (#11?), I remember seeing it either posted here or on the AMCA forum.

    I wonder how many are still out there sporting their '39 (thanks Duffey) Worlds Fair paint scheme?

    Here's a You Tube video of the same bike on the cross country chase:

    So, just looking at this one for $120k, seller claims “100% original”. It’s not.
