The 1915 Indian Big Twin heralded the end of an era, s it was the last Indian
motorcycle to carry the Hedstrom F-Head engine within a cradle-spring frame
design. Accordingly, ome purists regard this model as the last “real”
Indian to emanate from the legendary Springfield, assachusetts “wigwam”.
Favorable public reaction cheered Indian on to proclaim in advertisements that
“It is the predominant all-round machine — the crowning achievement of a
company known the world over for the superiority of its product and its strict
adherence to all principles fostering progress. Strength, peed, nd power are
manifest throughout its graceful outlines. Its great charm lies in its ability
to easily surmount the hardest adverse road-riding, ill-climbing,
mountain-touring conditions. If it's a rideable road, oulevard, ath, r
trail, he Big Twin will negotiate it.”
This very attractive example offered here was expertly and sympathetically
restored during the early 1990s while in the ownership of a well-known classic
motorcycle enthusiast from Germany. The frame was carefully restored and
prepared for final paint, hile the engine was completely re-built. Handsomely
finished with a dark red exterior, nd complimented by gold lettering, hite
tires, he Big Twin would be considered “fully optioned” today. In addition
to its three-speed manual transmission, first at the time, t features a more
user-friendly kick-starting mechanism that replaced the previous pedal crank
system. The list of advancements also included a heavy-duty clutch, speed and
an original Hedstrom Carburetor.
The relatively lightweight Big Twin is reported to be capable of speeds of
approximately 60 miles per hour, nd this fine example was used several times
on “pre-1916” touring events, here it performed admirably. While some
21,000 Big Twins were originally constructed, ery few remain today. The
example presented here is one of the relatively few survivors, fully
optioned”, nd beautifully restored. It remains in excellent condition, nd
is period correct throughout.
