Indian, a magical name in motorcycling, brings to mind the machines with lightning acceleration, a distinctive engine sound, glorious handling, artistic functionality of design - and a passionate following worldwide. Combining authoritative text with a remarkable array of period images, this completely modernised, large-format version of a much-loved classic book - the original edition was published in 1977 but has been out of print for many years - is one of the most readable marque histories ever published.
Harry Sucher's fascination with Indians began with a ride on a friend's Powerplus in 1921. He owned various models, assembling a large collection of antique machines, which in turn led to intensive research into Indian's complex history. Harry Sucher lives in California.
