    VIDEO Indian Hillclimber Motorcycle Racers

    What a great video Dale and the Wheels Through Time crew put together about the old alcohol burning Indian motorcycle hillclimbers.

    Crank up the speakers and enjoy this great video.

    YouTube - Indian Hillclimbers

    Plenty of great info on the early history of Indian racers from a guy who knows.

    Once again the folks at Maggie Valley come through with the stories of two ultra rare racers. Great video! Thanks to Dale, Matt, and all the WTT team for collecting and sharing these rare old motorcycles with us!

    Great video. Dale has a real talent in the way he talks about these (and other) vintage bikes and the way he tells their story. I'd watch stuff like this anyday over American Chopper (which I actually quite enjoy).

    Agree with micmac - I have to find a way to get down to Maggie Valley for a visit.

    make sure you call ahead because the hours are real spotty now. it is worth the wait even in the rain!!!! i don't know what we would do if anything ever happened to dale. there are collectors and there are knowledge gurus and there are good narrators but dale is an all in one for sure. i think he is enjoying making all the clips as much as we enjoy watching them

    Last time I spke with Dale (at least once ot more a week) he said they will be opening more often, but not every week.

    He said they will be posting the days they plan on being open on their web site.

    So before riding down there to see the place check his web site to be sure they are open and in town. Wheels Through Time - Home.
