I am young but you old farts need some young blood in this hobby.

Unfortunatley, I officially resemble that remark...... turned 50 last June...

Here is my Indian MM5A.  I bought this about a dozen years ago from a classified add in the local paper.

I geared it down by replacing the rear sprocket with one as large as the wheel.  Then I made a bracket that raised the handlebars so my knees would fit under them.  When I bought it I weighed 235 and rode it at tractor and car shows.  Now at 280 lbs :shoot2: I don't ride it anymore.

Here is a pic of my neice keeping it limbered up for me from about 6 years ago.  Enjoy!

You might note her lack of protective clothing.  Good thing it was geared down from stock!

I just sold an Italian malagutti 50cc from the early 70's with the same motor. He was buying it for the motor to put in another rare Italian bike, nice Indian!
