All custom motorcycle builders, including myself, remember very well the minute they receive the news that Indian Larry was killed. It has been 5 years since he left the custom motorcycle scene, but his mark and influence will remain forever on our Chopper Culture. Indian Larry’s life story is unique. So was his personality and the bikes he built in his Brooklyn, NY shop. For the fith year anniversary of his death, Cycle Source Magazine and Indian Larry Motorcycles have joined forces to release a commemorative print issue to be released in January 2010.
In it, never seen before pictures shot by New York photographer Clay Patrick McBride and a 16.5” x 21.5” full color pull-out poster of the man himself. This special edition takes a look at some of Larry’s most notable builds with commentary from friends who share what his life was like. A special section titled “The Coney Island Days” revisit one of Larry’s deepest passions, living around Coney Island and the sideshow lifestyle that went with it…A chapter is also dedicated to the whole cast of characters working with him, from Bobby to Elisa to Paul Cox and Keino and gives you an update on the “Chopper Shaman’s Family”. Distribution on the newsstand will be very limited to the best resellers, but you can reserve your issue right now ($6.99) by going to Cycle Source Magazine (pictures by Bobby Seeger)
