    Default 1926 JD Build

    Well I guess I will break in this new section. First let me introduce myself. My name is Mike Nichols and I live in western Massachusetts. I'm 27 years old (does this qualify me as young?) and work at a mechanical engineer. I became interested in the antique car world about 12 years ago when my father an I restored a 1972 Chevelle. After completing a few more cars, we discovered antique motorcycles, and, well, fell in love. Our introduction to motorcycles started with a few mid 70's Honda's, then it turned to Indians. Right now both my father and I ride Indian 741's and love them. I however, wanted something a bit older, hence the 26' JD

    I found the beginning of the JD at the Rhienbeck Swap meet in 2013. It was pretty crusty looking but I thought it would be a good start. I knew it was missing some stuff but I love swap meets so I didn't think that would be a problem. Settled on a price and brought her home! Once home, I spent a few hours looking everything over, since this was my first JD I wasn't really sure if what I was looking at was correct or not, turns out there was a fair amount that was not. After a few months of looking at the bike I decided it would be a good idea to tear everything apart and break the bike up into small sections for restoring.
