One, that bike got ridden more than yours ever will, and its a rigid frame. If you knew anything, you would know indian larry died on that bike. Larry was stunter of sorts, but he was doin it a long time before it was cool.

two, indian larry wasnt big into selling his bikes, i doubt you could buy that bike for 40 if you tried.

that bike is actually engineered to an extent beyond what you can comprehend. If you knew anything, you would know that indian larry earned his name by taking indian flat heads and re- engineering them to make hp and reliability most people thought was impossible. The motors he used in his last choppers were called oddball motors. his bikes used two different style HD heads, just becuase its not an easy thing to do. just for the sheer challenge. Making a 48 Pan head cooperate with 70's shovel head is not the easiest feat, if you ask me.

The last bike he built, the chain of mystery, had a frame composed of tig welded chain. That probally wasnt that easy either.

the only relevant statement you made was that you thought it looked like .

Well, larry considered motorcycle construction to be an art form, so thats what he used when he built one. Paul , the best leather smith in the nation, and his business partner, did all of the leather tooling. Robert pratke, did his paint that you liked. The motor has countless hours of metal engraving.

The only reason a bike like that goes together in a week, is becuase these guys know what they are doing. Not becuase it was easy, but becuase Larry was the best.



That bike took a of alot more than 5 grand to put together.


Indian Larry was the last great american hero. You can go to for talking trash for talkin about that sickle.
Hey number one you can **** off alrighty partner...If you like good ol idian larry or whatever cool im sure he had a impact on bikes but as far as im concerned they are over priced p.o.s...

I didnt know that bike had so much histery behind it so for that one fact i appoligise but for the rest you can suck my the bikes have no REAL enginering behind them......Its whatever they think looks good...and if you think that they do all this enginering on the motors thats pretty laim too becouase they all make around 65hp wow my dads 1981 bmw motorcycle made that...But hey you have the right to your opinion but dont think for 2 seconds your going to talk to me...I will be out at asi on weds if you wanna talk about this further...

Agreed, Choppers are over priced. I am not defending choppers, harleys or any of that for that matter.

I am simply defending old style choppers ( and bobbers), and indian larry.

Again, he didnt sell his bikes.

i aint here to talk , I am simply here to put truth were truth belongs, cuz larrys dead and he cant defend himself.

And I think taking technology from the forties and giving it 65 hp does take a fair amount of work.

let me guess, youve been around motorcycles for a long time and know this is a fact? what do you have to say about the rake and stretch on the "choped" bikes? they just put together whatever they think looks cool?

i think you seriously need to re-read what you post on these forums as far as content and spelling. your making yourself look immature.
