Spokane 841

This article was passed along to me by a coworker. You'd be hard pressed to find a motorcycle with more character. There were only about 1,000 841's built between 1941-1943. I had no idea Indian was using the later style girder fork so early.

The front fork on later Indian Chiefs was actually developed for the 841. I also read that a few new surplus 841's were released to dealers, who civilianized them and sold them as new.

A pretty rare machine. Cool!
