He said "It's a 1940 Indian Military Special".




I just left visiting mom, when this caught my eye. I went up the street a bit and turned around. When I got back to it, I didn't notice anyone around. I was only taking photographs, when this tall, thin gentleman said "It's a 1940 Indian Military Special. Most of the ones you see are Harley's". I said "Sorry, but I had to photograph this". He said "That's alright. Go ahead".

I said "Wow, it has a suicide shift". He said "Yep. Indian was on the right and Harley was on the left". He said he had it restored about 8 years ago.

It was a pretty day. Temperature was in the upper 80's and sunny. I'd be out on that gorgeous bike too!

Wow. I'd be around that bike with my camera too. A beautiful, unusual style of bike. Very flash.
