World's slowest Indian (custom)

Postby Pushie Pirate » Mon Apr 15, 2013 6:59 pm

Been collecting and building bikes for some time here are a few pic's of one of my favorite bikes.
A tribute to one of my heros Burt Munro who took his 1920's Indian Scout to the Bonneville salt flats
and broke records! No she is not a streamliner a pushie version of an Indian Scout, hence the name,
The World's Slowest Indian!

Has a three speed Sturmy Archer rides okay obviously heavy but hey you don't need to ride a bike like this fast!

Suicide shifter!

Bravo, great looking result :D
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

I visited the E Hayes & Sons store last year. There were some wonderful machines on display amongst the hardware, including one of the movie replicas and a couple of Bert's bikes and a couple of fairly original Scouts.

Do you just weld them back together or braze?

Pretty much old school arch welder with the amps down low and 2mm rods.
I then grind them back and bog all the joins to clan them up.

Hi
I am new to here and I would like to say, Man does that look the goods or what. 8)
I have a similar interest in this style of bike for myself. You have definately given me some hope and incentive.
Definately a credit to you, keep up the good work.

Thanks

Ian
