    I’m sorry, but some of the features of that redish Indian bike are butt ugly.. That rear fender NEEDS TO GO! Hideous!!

    This gives me hope. Hope that polaras will not abandon the heritage of Indian. The Victory line will serve those who find the modern lines attractive. The Indian line should serve those of us who find the heritage and culture associated with the :classic” look attractive.

    When the Indian kit bike was brought out nobody even thought about design changes that would have been done if Indian had stayed in business.

    Rich , How much would be too far of a departure of the “blood line”. I think the new indian can have a classic line , but innovate with the addition of new models… but we’ll see what they do

    Is the new Indian using those big fenders as a crutch? Is that all that the old Indian was all about, was big fenders? Big fenders are not really all that complicated, are they?

    I dont like the way he went back to the new pig and said this one is equaly important in our history.because the new ones are a part of history that should be forgotten. New sport bober style inline four with nice simple desighned engin , no radiator,no crap hanging off just nice pipes on one side and nice fuel injected carb mayby on the other side.simple sleek and able to mount bags an stuff for touring.

    I was getting worried there for bit after that last bit from Polaris involving that transmission part they were pimping the other day — had no rust at all, was just a shiny new piece of new motor. WTH?

    It’s all good now though. Mike Wolfe is back in the weeds in front of that old 100 year old decaying barn. Whew, I feel better already…..

    Indian was smart to hire Mike Wolfe . I hope Indian does well, it would be great to see the Indian’s on the road again.
