I have a question that maybe you Indian experts can help me with.
On October 26, 1923, the Hendee Manufacturing Co. changed its name to the Indian Motocycle Co. The word "motocycle" was used (no "r") instead of the usual spelling of motorcycle (with the "r").
Everyone knows that is true, but did Indian ever explain why they spelled it that way? You'd think that at the time the change was made, an explanation would have been given, but was there?
Is the reason known or is it something of a mystery? How do you guys explain it?
