Thank you for visiting our site, we would love to hear from you!

Please  click on the following link, leave your Name, Country and comment and we will update this page as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours).

Just wanted to say thank you to Phil Clarke and Ken Lee, for all their work and research, to provide me with a dating certificate.
It's the most professional and informative certificate I've seen, and it prompted DVLA to register my Indian 4, at last !

Slightly non-standard, supercharged 741B. I ran her at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah last year & broke the class record. I have another 741B with a NOS engine, a sort of “Bobber” with leaf spring girders, but totally home made. I also have a daughter of 25, her middle name is Hendee. Pictures are of the same bike. I like Indians.

Could Dieter Rudolph, who rode for the wall of death rider, Frankie Todd, please contact me.  Frankie was my cousin so I wondered whether you could email me. I saw your message to Debbie Todd some years ago. Ann Wright (born Ann Todd)

I last had a very brief ride on a 1951 80 cube Indian Chief in 1984. Thirty years later, I got a ride on the new Indian Chief with the 111 cube motor. Still grinning. Maybe not a ‘real’ Indian to many, but these new models are lovely to ride. Really lovely to ride. 

Just in case it is any use, a pic of the Chieftain’s dash plus overall shots with a Victory in the background plus the Chieftain for those who want to see the alternative tank decal used.

Does anybody of you know where the Indian Chief Snowmobile (similar to the one on the attached picture), that was offered in ebay UK a few years ago went? I missed the auction back then and with that much snow over here in the Alps I start getting interested in it again! I am just curious about it – am interested in any information on where it when, what the current owner does with it and in case it is for sale I also concider buying it!

Great pictures and Club. Where can I find an Indian same as Geoff Eyres's bike  but in Military or black  color. What is the best site for looking to buy a 1941  741B Indian.

Message to Debbie, United Kingdom. Her posting 22nd November 2004 

Now it so happens that I worked on Debbie's Dad's Wall of Death in Barry, South Wales. I would love to make contact with Debbie and tell her about my time with her Dad. Frank Todd married the Daughter of the Crane Family and Debbie must be the result.

From your records would you be able to dig out a contact detail for Debbie or ask her to e-mail me direct. I actually saw Frank Todd's wall in use in Hamburg not long ago and one of the INDIAN Bikes Frank used was still in use by the new owners. That's over 50 years later and when Frank used it in the 1950' it was certainly not new then.

Would be grateful and I am sure Debbie would be ever so thrilled to hear direct from me

Hi, At last !! I've found other Indian owners in UK. Can someone help me ?? I have just imported a 2003 Roadmaster and waiting for a Msva appointment, i would like to get her through the test first time and don't fully understand what has to be tested, my main concern is the exhaust noise (i think it has a standard 2 into 1 straight through that is well loud ) Can i just put insulation tape in the right place on the headlight as you do when driving abroad ?
I met two Indian riders at Sunday's bike jumble near Woodchurch who told me their were two main Indian clubs in GB, one lot were a bunch of W.nke.s and the other lot were a bigger bunch of i was so pleased to at last find not only one but two groups of like minded folk. I hope to see you at Flimwell and join your club (If you'll have me).

Ivor, East Sussex              19th September 2007

You have a lovely web site. Here are  photos of my Indians , a 43' Scout and a 47' Chief . I would be an honor if you could include them in your gallery.

The INDIAN MOTOCYCLE must be the elite of all classic bikes, I saw a pair of Indian Twin bikes in the new forest last summer, these bikes etched a place in my heart, I would love to own one, but I dont think that will happen I will just have to potter around on my Honda Shadow, wishing it was an Indian. All you owners are very LUCKY people.

Many thanks Stephen Floyd                  17th July 2007

Well Done - Brilliant Website

Brian "Rat" Barrett , United Kingdom                     25th February 2007

Just came acros your website.  After returning to NZ a year ago (from Holland), your site brings back memories of all the great times we’ve shared on European rally’s with John, Jess, Robin, Ray (upside down head), Mike and all you other crazy english, who kept us laughing many a night.  Hope to see you in NZ sometime!

John  & Miryam  Denny , New Zealand                      29th August 2005

I would like to thank you all on behalf of my friend (Kawasaki 1100) and my self (Harley 1200 sportster) for a very enjoyable and friendly weekend 3-5/6/05. The food was great and so was the company.  It only took me 7 hours to get back home pulling 95 with a big grin. 
Hope to meet up again

Ian, United Kingdom                                            7th June 2005

Hopefully one day in the near future I will own my own indian ,I currently ride a bmw cruiser which is great , but nothing compares to the real thing

Vincent, United Kingdom                               31st March 2005

This is just a personal opinion. But the sound of a nice turquoise 47 CHIEF would sound absolutely fabulous. Any way great web site.    Happy Trails

Arrowhead,  United Kingdom                   10th March 2005  


My Dad rode Indians on a Wall of Death in the fifties and sixties.  His name was Frank Todd and he rode with his dad and uncles at the Olympia Festival of Britain.

He then rode for Kitty and Pitt in Munich before buying his own Wall.  Good website.

Debbie,  United Kingdom                            22nd November 2004  

Hello thought I would share a photo of my restored 47 chief. Not stock colors but beautiful anyway!
