    I got my calendar today and there was a tiny little picture of my 1917 Henderson in it. Of course I'd rather see more pictures of 70s vintage dirt bikes, and Puch mopeds; but I'm kinky like that:)

    I put all of my vehicles in neutral at stop lights because I think it is safer, and easier on the clutch. Modern Kevlar clutches really minimized gear grinding on my Chief, but long term familiarity...

    This is a picture of the coil area of a 1940 Chief that was very well done, and researched. Sorry for the poor quality as it was scanned from an older photograph.

    Just a guess, but it looks like the rear fender for an Indian Standard, that was offered from 1922-'24. The cut-outs look like they would be clearance for the leaf spring suspension.

    I thought early 1946 Indians came with 18" rims as standard. You would know more than me, but I do know that early post war motorcycles can be hard to define due to lingering material shortages, and...

    Steve, I like the smoothness, and quiet of belts, but I have never had a primary chain shed it's links when I'm accelerating on to a highway. Just my 2 cents; I'll never go back to a belt.
