Thread: Trying To Relaunch Indian Motorcycle Illustrated Magazine

    Trying To Relaunch Indian Motorcycle Illustrated Magazine

    Many years ago we used to publish Indian Motorcycle Illustrated magazine.

    It was quite popular (many issues still sold at www.greaserag.com) and I have been trying to figure out a way to bring it back.

    Thoughts and suggestions?

    I'm thinking a blend of classic (pre 1954) and contemporary Indians, tech, history racing, etc.

    I was a charter subscriber of the original and have every issue until its demise. However, mix in contemporary stuff and I would have zero interest. But I am just one person and one opinion.

    Would buy it if the articles are only about the pre 1954 Indians. Polaris is o.k. for adverts but I did not want to read about them.

    Buzz, I also still have every issue but you're Never gonna sell this Crew on the Polaris part.

    I would like to see it brought back, I too have every issue of the original publications. I think the only way it would make sense to you financially is to feature some of the modern Indians as well. I have no issue with that. However please make it mostly about the original Springfield motorcycles.

    Robbie, I would have to agree with you. There are plenty of magazines that cater to the modern bike crowd out there. If it was dedicated to pre-54 Indians I would for sure read it as I wait for my prescriptions to be filled. LOL. Honestly I think it would work as the Polaris crowd would get confused and buy it thinking it was for their modern bikes.

    this is something to think about. Polaris clamped down on everyone but then HD did the same thing.
