1931 Indian Custom Motorcycles For Home Repairs

 

MOTOR BIKES SPEED HOME REPAIRS

When anything goes wrong in the house, from the furnace to the radio, a Los Angeles, Calif., resident has but to step to the telephone and at his call instantly one of a fleet of repair motorcycles will come whizzing to the rescue.

The organizer of this novel service first got together a large staff of experts in many household crafts and trades. Then he equipped them with speedy motorcycles.
 
The odd shape of the vehicles, patterned after bungalows, attracts attention as they speed through the streets and results in making his service more widely known. Each of the men employed is bonded and is thoroughly trained in his line as an electrician, radio repair man, plumber, carpenter, or expert in gas fixtures.

My Dual Linkert Carb Classic Harley Panhead Bobber

The term motorcycle bobber is thrown around these days by a lot of people who have no idea what it really means or even that many of the originals were referred to as bob-jobs back in the day.

About 10 years ago I go the idea to build my own Harley bobber with mostly real Harley parts from the same era. I started collectig part at swapmeets and bike shows with a fair idea of what I wanted. Rigid frame, sprung solo saddle, suicide clutch (no, there is no such thing a a suicide shift – at least not as fas as I have ever heard), jocky shift, unusual exhaust, and dual Linkert carbs – side by side on the left side of the engine.

1949 Harley Panhead bobber motorcycle - what a classic!

Well, many years and several variations here is what it looks like now. We followed the original build of this in American Iron Magazine and will probably redo it to show the progress today.

Modified Superior shotgun exhaust pipes

It originally had red rims and oil tank, red grips and white wall tires.

Matched dual Linkert carburetors on modified Panhead heads and bracket.

More story and photos to follow soon.
