Note! If interested in bidding & questions. please provide your name. phone number and location or you will be blocked! 

Prior owner was Billy Doyle who made a name for himself during the heyday.

 Until I acquired both Fours. both were last run in 2007 or 2008.  

In August 2014. both Fours were started after changing the oil. adding fresh gasoline and working on the carburetors whose needle valve and floats needed attention!

Fellowship and suggestions for the 1928 Four assisted in learning the proper sequence for starting the 1928 Four! 

Both Fours have magneto's.  

Both Fours once started. ran flawlessly.

The clutch/s  worked free!

Driven around the Tiffin. OH fair grounds. oil pressure remained constant!

  1942 Indian Four with Vard Front End

This Four is unique with a Vard front end! Made available for both Harley and Indian. the comfort of a hydraulic front end compared to the leaf spring was a good and period correct alteration.

An article describing the front end is included with this auction!

?·        Started in August

?·        Indian logo spotlights

I have not taken the time to check out the electrics on the bike as some things appeared to be disconnected.

The Four was started and driven by use of magneto only. Lights and other electrics were not used or tried! 

Gut feeling is that it would be a simple task to identify and correct.  

It has a ceramic manifold and runs with a high oil pressure but remains constant at 50 psi.
