Indian Motorcycle Takes to the Skies

Originally posted on Riding Vintage.


The engine pictured above is one of two, 7 cylinder engines built by Hendee Manufacturing Company (the makers of Indian motorcycles) in 1911. They mark Indian’s brief entry into the field of aviation and were named the Indian Aero Motor. Indian’s design borrowed heavily from the French Gnome “Omega” engine, in particular using a fixed crankshaft around which the crankcase and cylinders rotate. ┬áIt was able to produce 50 hp at 1,100 rpm and with a displacement of 513 cubic inches, the Indian Aero Motor was not only powerful, but lightweight, weighing only 185 lbs.

Very Cool Wall of Death Stripped Indian Motorcycle

I need a set of wheels like this for one of my old street bikes – perhaps a 1920s Harley JD.

I believe this is Lillian LaFrance on an early Wall of Death bike.
