This motorcycle with sidecar is an extremely well preserved version of an early Indian motorcycle, and with this particular type of sidecar, making it relatively rare. Another rare item is that it was the only year that the gas and oil tanks were made in two pieces using cast aluminum.
Since the actor's death, this bide had several people attempt to restore it mechanically. Fortunately, our own EWM member, Jerry Greer, was a former Indian Motorcycle dealer and painstakingly went through the majority of the mechanical items while being extremely careful to retain the patina of this vintage era treasure.
