Barnfind & Original 1913 Indian Motorcycle


Barnfind & Original 1913 Indian Motorcycle Running

What an amazing machine. This 1913 Indian twin had been sitting in a barn for decades. We wanted it to run and get back on the road, but didn’t want to mess with the time worn condition.

After pulling it out of a barn and inspecting it, we turned the bike over to Brad Wilmarth to sort it out and get it running, but leave the cosmetic finish as found.

A year later, this is what Brad managed to do after taking it all apart and rebuilding the mechanics.
