Vintage Indian

  • February 23, 2014 12:20 PM PST
    Years ago had an Indian MT100 dirt bike, little did I know that would get me into riding on/off for 30 + years. That's my father checking out while my mother snapped the photo.  Wondering who else had their first taste of two wheel on an Indian.

    Wish I could find a Indian from those days, in that condition.

    Started on a mini Dirt Bike.

    It not only "looks like" New England, it is.  I'm from Maine, hauled a lot of  fuc&#%g lobster traps that summer to be able to buy that bike.  While it was a good bike, it was constantantly having issues, that day I believe the gasket went on the head and we ended up cutting a new one out of a box of Lucky Charms or similar kids cereal.  Didn't have much money, but the old man was pretty resourceful.

    In terms of what happened to me?  Good question.

    I appreciate that, my Dad's 90 and I still ask his advice on stuff, done some stupid shit in my life  - lucky he was there, and try to pay it forward to my kid.
