Indian Motorcycles For Sale Again - How'd I miss it?

Once upon a time, I was going to get an Indian Chief. Then Indian Motorcycles went out of business, so I didn't.

This seems to have worked out pretty well for me. I got a Triumph, and have been just as happy as can be with it.

I've been watching the developments with the new Indian company for the last several years. Really, I'd been hoping for an American motorcycle company to come along and compete with HD. Maybe stir up some innovation.

So imagine my surprise the other day when I went past the local HD shop (the same shop that convinced me NOT to buy a Harley), and saw a sign proclaiming they were also an Indian dealership.

What the Hell?

I'll be interested to see how this works out for them.

Also, I'm rather disappointed there is only one "Chief" model with the swoopy fenders. Without the flair, they're just another V-twin billet barge.

Also also, $30,000+???

I went to school with the owner of the company Stephen Julius, and he was a smart and adventurous young man.Smarter and wealthier than me for sure. Perhaps he can sell Indians to bankers as symbols of their acumen and visible proof of their wealth. Luckily for him motorcycles are not symbols necessarily of good sense.
