For Sale: 1923 Indian Motorcycle in Stratford, Wisconsin


Vehicle Description

This 61 cubic inch (1,000cc) Indian Big Valve model was originally raced by well-known Dutch rider Mr. Hans Herkulegns, who was famous for his bicycle pacer work on big BAC and Anzani's Pacer motorcycles. Originally raced in Europe this Indian was exported to a collection in Australia and then to a New Zealand collector who sent it to the United States in 2020. The Indian PowerPlus engine was a design of Charles Gustafson, who had already earned fame as an engine designer at the Reading Standard company before he was approached by the Indian management. His task was to design a powerful, robust reliable and production friendly engine to replace the old F-head V-twin design of Oscar Hedstrom. The resulting 61-inch side valve PowerPlus introduced in 1916 was an immediate success and this model is still one of the most coveted American vintage motorcycles. This 1923 machine is in period racing trim with low sports handlebars, Bosch magneto and a rigid rear frame. It shows as though it has just come off the track under the skilled hands of champion Dutch rider Hans Herkulegns. Email [email protected] or call 715-687-4522
