Indian Scouts - Then and Now

5w ago


I posted some pics of a very nice 1942 Indian Scout yesterday, and then remembered that I had pictures of a very recent version too - so here are pictures of both.

I find it really interesting that so many of the styling cues have continued on for over 75 years.. And yet the new version looks fresh and new, and modern.. Great work, Indian!

I'm not sure of the exact year of the Newer Bike, as it wasn't really a display, it was the daily ride of one the friendly staff at Gosford! I think he mentioned it was about a year old.

  • When I go looking for a new bike, I'll admit, the Scout isn;t really what I seek out. I saw the all matte black bobber version online in a craigslist add, and I am here to tell you that all has changed! it is a sharp lookin, real world fnctioning bike for today. Now I have to sit and compare the Triumph and Indian. One thing I do know, I will have a great looking, performing, and a classic style with modern amenities!

    • I ride a 99 Heritage Classic, the last Evolution engine put in a Harley Softail. The best motor Harley ever produced. The twin cam had inherent issues, but you never heard anything...
