This motorized bicycle met with immediate success, and the 1933 Indian Motorcycle. Indian Motocycle Company was soon formed in Springfield, Massachusetts. » Subscribe: http://bit.ly/JLGSubscribe » Visit the Official Site: http://bit.ly/JLGOfficialSite THE BEST OF JAY LENO'S GARAGE » Exclusive First Looks: http://bit.ly/JLGExclusives » Ultra Rare Supercars: http://bit.ly/JLGSupercars » Jay's Book Club: http://bit.ly/JLGBookClub JAY LENO'S GARAGE ON SOCIAL Follow Jay: http://Twitter.com/LenosGarage Like Jay: http://Facebook.com/JayLenosGarage ABOUT JAY LENO'S GARAGE A new video every Sunday!

1947 Indian motorcycle startup and ride off (Alec MacKaye)
Alec MacKaye starting up and riding his 1947 Indian on the mean streets of Washington, DC. Throttle is on the left handle bar, right handle bar is timing advance (twist it and the distributer moves back and forth witch advances the timing), clutch is left foot pedal, rear brake is right foot pedal, and the front brake is the right handle bar level like current motorcycles. This guy bought this bike 25 years ago, before they were cool.
1936 KNucklehead starting for the first time in seventy years
Here is a clip that my dad shot of me starting 36EL 1005 for the first time after a six year restoration. The right tank is off, so that we can adjust that overhead oiling. This bike is my dad's submission for Micheal Lichter's Eternal Combustion, Motorcycles as Art Exhibit that will be at The Buffalo Chip Campground this year at Sturgis 2010! Swing by and check it out if you are in the area.
