1914 Indian 8hp V-twin

Indian actually appeared on the US scene before Harley-Davidson, who are now the world's oldest motorcycle manufacturer still in existence (since 1903). The Indian company was founded in 1901 in Springfield, Massachusetts, and for many years they were Harley's greatest rival. This model has a leaf-sprung rear frame, and was even available with an electric starter, but uses a dated inlet-over-exhaust valve layout.
