Unrestored 105-year Old Indian Camelback Motorbike

Published by Cyril Huze December 27th, 2011 in Builders, Editorial and Events.
Antique motorcycles have always more value when unrestored. At most, you can “oil rag” them, wiping them down with some oil, just keeping rust but postponing somewhat its destructive effect. This 1906 Indian Camelback motorbike fits the profile of what collectors are looking for: less than 1700 were produced and one of a handful known as 100% unrestored, everything piece original from the Indian factory and that you could ride… Supposedly, it was ridden for the last time in the 70′s.
You could acquire it at the Las Vegas Bonhams auction January 12, 2012 if you are ready to invest around US $80,000, its estimated collector value. The 105-year old machine is pedal assisted, runs on a 2.25 HP single cylinder engine for a maximum speed of 30 mph. Braking system is rudimentary, of the type of the one used on bicycles. Original registration number on the rear mud guard. And the pleasure to know that Indian was the big rival of Harley-Davidson until the company demise in 1953.
