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.

First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8 1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail, fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.
