I didn't click the link. But agre with 30k is to much. Very niche, but you never know. Maybe people with cash will get sick of choppers you can't ride.

I looked at them, a few years ago..can't remember the price. Most had S&S motors, but they had developed a proprietary motor right before they folded. I'd imagine that's what will be in them. Looks like it in the pictures anyway.

That is an incredible looking bike! Like you said though, a lot of cash... I'd almost rather buy a fully restored late 40's model for $20K rather than spend $35K on one that might be a one or two year production run at those prices in this economy

Two very different beasts...

IF you didn't want to ride it much, I'd fully agree with you on a fully restored antique Indian. I believe that Indians up 'till the mid '50's had jockey shifters and suicide clutches,... not exactly easy to ride. Then the crappy ass drum brakes they had back then,... well you get the picture. They probably didn't handle all that great either. Same thing with older Harleys. On the upside, the antique Indian or Harley would increase in value, whereas a new one would stay the same or depreciate.

Yeah, if I got the vintage bike it would definitely not be my long haul choice. That said, I saw the most pristine Indian ever at Luckenbach about 2 years ago. Got to talking to the man that owned it, it was his first bike that he bought after getting home from WWII and that he did all maintenance and upkeep himself. He said he had ridden it to all 49 states along with Canada and Mexico over the years. I mean it literally looked like it could still have the dealers price tag hanging from the handlebars
