Cannonball update Chris Knoop is mentioned in dispatches & Vindian’s


Just got this from the Antique Motorcycle Club in America, about how the rallies going, it’s a good read, also in the Sections area of our site the NO 6 edition of the West Australian Indian Club News is posted, more reading on your favorite subject. The next questioned that has been asked is the Vindian, I believe that your webmaster is the leading authority on Vincati,( built 3,with severe input to Big Sids), Indian-Vincent prototype which I own, & the Vindian which I am currently constructing a example at the moment, & I’m  writing a 20 page article on how too make one this will be available in the Members Area & in our quarterly newsletter Smoke Signals soon .The other two in Australia Peter Arundle’s I supplied the majority of the historical data to Lindsay Urquhart that was around at that time for it to be built & the Birthisle one which I found a engine in Sth Australia (ex-Brian Harker), overhauled it & supplied the historical data for its completion, also ratified it’s engine provenance with Vince Farrell (Machine Register Vincent Owners UK). So whats the story on the 4 Vindian’s above, good question in chronological order above these four I have nil details on, the original machine still exists in a form in the Du-Pont Museum in the states, although as it was shipped back to America without a engine Indian Sales fitted a donor engine to see what it was like, it was lasted spotted on the road in the early sixties at Daytona.Any information at all on these or any others that I don’t know about will be appreciated
