Does anyone have a picture or info on an experimental prototype Indian Scout? It had a V-twin motor in a vertical twin frame. There's supposed to be a 1952 photo from the Indian experimental department. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a picture, sort of. It's in "Indian Motorcycle Photographic History" by Jerry Hatfield, page 209. There's a picture of a Warrior on a stand at the Indian factory in 1952. The machine with the Sport Scout motor in the vertical frame is on another stand in the background. Not much but you can definately tell what it is. Sam Pierce later made a batch of these out of his parts stash.
