1930 Indian Scout OHV A45 — #12 of 25
This 1930 Indian Scout factory built racer is lucky to be a survivor! The owner purchased the bike complete and running and had it in his museum. The owner decided to sell the motorcycle and was informed by a potential buyer that the engine was not correct and therefore the bike had no value to him. Because if an incredible stroke of luck, the original engine was purchased and placed into the bike. The engine number, frame number, and engine plates are all stamped correctly from the factory. It now has incredible historical value as a real, proven, factory racer. Number 12 of the 26 known to have been manufactured. This historical motorcycle has been meticulously restored and is available for the next curator.It was built to run and it does that, a real fire breather! Hang on tight if you take it out.
