1908 Indian on display in Ga.

Thought you guys might like this. Located at Tellus science museum in Cartersville Georgia. Great place with all kinds of early cars and rocks and minerals and dinosaurs.

Indian Motocycles

My Girl has just asked, 'what is the difference between Motocycle and Motorcycle', why is Motocycle significant?'.
Good question, I don't have an answer.
Any ideas?
Glenn.

Wow. Most of its contemporaries were belt drive, making them pretty useless in wet weather.

Just an antiquated way of saying motorcycle before motorcycle became fully adopted.

I'd like to know what the rods are that come down off the handle bars to the head tube area. If that shadow wasn't there it would probably be more obvious.

Those are the control rods. One for throttle, the other for ignition advance (IIRC).

yup- instead of cables they used rods and a bunch of universal joints.
oh ya, throttle on the left, advance on the right!

Just a coaster brake like a bicycle. I'm trying to figure out a front brake for my bastard Harley belt drive single. Harley didn't offer front brakes until 1928 .

Kind of like the change from aeroplane to airplane here in the states. I like the old way better.
