    Harley-Davidson J series clutch pedals also have the hinge/spring feature. I can't imagine anyone leaning a J Harley far enough to benefit from that hinge feature, but I think their (H-D, and Indian)...

    Indian's Roger's era vertical models were always considered the red headed step child of Indian but I think that has changed. Just speaking for myself, I think they were beautiful motorcycles 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.

    I had forgotten how good looking the Torque 4 was. Which brings to mind when I messed up an easy shot in pool, someone would always say; "Good concept, but poor execution." That seems to have been...

    Great video, Gary and glad you finally got that Chief finished. I liked your choice of music as opposed to the usual skull smashing, heavy metal, crap rock that seems to accompany anything engine...

    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 only use epoxy primer paint, which hasn't been a storage problem. For top coat paint I use single stage acrylic enamel and use "Transtar" wet look hardener. They redesigned their container a while...

    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...

    The seat T is Indian. We would need a picture of the seat pan to see if it's a 'Buddy', or Chum-me'.

    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.

    Sounds like great projects, Rich. I'm prejudiced, but I think Js, JDs, and JDHs are the most interesting, and beautiful Harleys. I don't believe H-D ever surpassed the quality of material, and...

    Sorry I didn't answer sooner. A Super X without front brake used 9.50" spokes in the front, and 9.56" spokes in the rear. This is according to an original parts book I have.

    I like the '24JD, but that sidecar doesn't do it any favors. The bike has most all the hard to find '24 bits, although the restoration leaves a lot to be desired. If someone is looking for a good...

    I think there should be another front bar that clamps to the front tube of the SC, and then clamps to the lower front part of the motorcycle frame. Most every sidecar uses 3 mounts, with one being a...

    I think you are correct that it is an Indian sidecar frame. The front mount looks like it would mate to a 1917, and later Indian PowerPlus frame that had the front lug under the steering head. Looks...

    I had a sidecar on my 1951FL. A sidecar is hell on almost every part of a motorcycle, but also fun and that is the trade off. H-D spokes, and nipples are quite stout so I don't know if there is a...
