Above is the Indian 101 Scout motorcycle built by the Indian Motorcycle Company between 1928 and 1931. It has been called the best motorcycle Indian ever made

After WW I the Indian factory decided it was time to market a somewhat lighter V-twin model than the 1000cc PowerPlus. The new model was labelled “Scout” and it created a sensation when brought out in 1920

Designed by  Charles B. Franklin, the Scout had its gearbox bolted to the engine and driven by gears instead of by belt or chain
