I bought this in 2001 for $XXXXX.xx amount of dollars. It was a frame, engine, stock front fork wheels, and gas tanks.
When I had my shop I advertized in Indian illustrated a dude from a town not far from my shop came by and offered it to me, and gave me a short story how he got it. It went something like this he had it for 5 years and being a Harley man had no idea of how to repair or restore thatís what he wanted to do. Since he didnít have enough parts to do a decent restore, I bought it from him, anyhow he bought it from some guy in South Jersey near Holmdel who was going through a D I V O R C E and sold it to him. After buying from I called my good friend over to look at the new toy, as we examined it I noticed that the screws holding the oil pump on were loose removing them and the cam cover we discovered N.O.S. Bonn. Cams (True) when the oil pump came off the breather disc was taped to the pump and the 12-24 screws were NO.S. Also looking thru the oil drain was sludge. Once separating the cases we found Swiss Cheesed flywheels...
Ok now putting 2+3 together and knowing where it originally came from I made some phone calls and found out it was one of the Collivetto brothers old project bike.
So since it was not all there IE; parts and I didnít like the stock frt. Fork this is what I came up with. Now I have screwed around with Indians since 1970 and have been laughed at by H/D dealers and Assoc. that you could not use H/D parts on an Indian, well here it is a Scoutster.
Well thatís the short story I could go on n on but that will be in my book.
This was the most funnest project I ever did. Sorry to see it go.

Now if you email me or ask me questions about the various H/D parts that are on this I really havenít a clue as to what year or maybe even mdl. You see I never owned a Harley b/4 and never had any interest in them. So look at the pictures I have many and you can email me to down load to you or Iíll try to place some more on Flicker.
(Digital Road Kill).

Best regards
