1911 boardtrack racer
« on: Oct 21, 2009, 21:18:24 »
I'm sure this has made its rounds. But for those of us who missed it here it is. The first is a 500 cc 1911 Indian capable of 85 mph. In original condition.  The second is a 1000cc 1914 Indian. Hear them run. Cool stuff:

Make sure to watch the video where they start up the 1000cc 1914. I can't imagine how bad ass it would feel to ride that thing! Awesome stuff

Oh Blessed Gods of Internal Combustion!
That 1000cc bike sounds unbelievable!
Can you imagine racing it with fireballs blowing out at your legs every time a cylinder hit? Imagine running it at night..
