Dale & Matt Walkser preparing a 100 year old Indian for a ride after sitting for over 80 years!
Ready for some Indian Hill Climber history? Join Dale Walksler from Wheels Through Time Museum as he talks about a couple of his motorcycles.
A dramatic start to the video enthralls the viewer with the sight and sounds of the Hill climbing Indians.
1928 and 1939 Indian Motorcycles are discussed in detail. Dale Walksler takes the viewer through salient points of the alcohol fuelled Serial Number A61-1 machine as the camera zooms and pans over the detail of the patina. The history of the bike is covered along with photograph of the rider racing the hill climber.
Dale describes the mechanical attributes of the motor and explains why it is so special!
His attention is then taken to the 1939 B Scout hill climber…only 18 if the bikes were ever built. The motorcycle is in exceptional condition which stands as testament to the racers skill. The condition is also original, right down to the tyres. The serial FCI 18 determines the motorcycles correctness as a factory hill climber… one of the best surviving Indian hill climber in America.
