tanks for the memoryHendee medalsoil canIndian Beerboard track crash

As news is thin on the ground till next week when the new Indian Motorcycle engine is released the first since the famous “bottle cap ” engine in 2002 I have a few other odd photos. The collage of various tanks was done by Guido Allan and has appeared on Facebook, the next two are interesting being lubricants for the man & machine (don’t mix them up) the next picture shows a young George Hendee as a amateur champion bicyclist, man this guy has won a few medals & in those days with no drugs as the modern champions in America have been recently accused of taking. Luckily George’s need for speed set him on the road to making our beloved Indian’s, speaking of which the board track racers used to have lots of crashes with a number of fatalities at high speed, fortunately this group seem to have survived although the Indian is pretty worse for wear.
