One comment on “An (almost) half million mile Beemer, a stunning Indian a Triumphs (for scale) and a nice ride report from our old friend Chuck Lathe.

  1. Apparently Royal Enfeild aquirred the rights, or at least used the Indian name form about 1959 until, I believe, 1963. They badged their Constellation models with the Indian logo in an attempt to improve U.S. sales. I have even seen U.S. police models with the Indian name. My brother bought a chopper in the early 70’s made from one of these models. The name and logo are also stamped into the timing cover. As you know, the Indian name has been reserected and fought over several times since the original company died. In my humble opinion no one will ever be able to do justice to the original, but who can blame them for trying?
