Birmingham Rouge - Vintage Indian



It's been a while since I posted from the amazing Barber Motorsports Museum.  Here's two of a vintage Indian.  That's all I can share. Perhaps some of my more knowledgable readers can comment on the year/model or whatever. It's shiny and red and I liked it!

Sweet! Love the red color.

I don't know the age, late 30's early 40's I suppose.

Wayne's helpful tip of the day: Take a picture of the plaque beside the motorcycle or 'what have you'. :-)

Shiny and red works for me!!!

PS-Love your new header!!! Very traditional...would expect this to be New England in the late 1800's!!!

I love the red, so vibrant. The bike really pops.

Wonderful composition. James Dean should be riding this. The seat looks like a butt-buster, though.

Tonight could be fun. All thirteen of us at little sis' house are taking a minibus (the roads are open but still pretty slick) to a Cuban restaurant in Manhattan with strolling guitarists and flowing mojitos. Camera in hand, of course.

Wayne,
I knew you'd know my friend! :)

Bob,
Now that I have a look, it doesn't look all that comfortable!

Thanks everyone. Glad you loved this great bike and the rouge of course! :)

V, I think my Dad had an Indian (I know he had a Harley). That would have been the early to mid 40's - wish he was here to ask. Beautiful and he would have LOVED the red!

vw bobstack - are the Untouchables around here too?

Hi Chuck, It's a 1930 or 1931 101 scout.
