Ran When Parked

From the newly discovered (for me anyway) Bike-urious. It appears to be the Bring-a-Trailer of motorcycles.

This specific Indian 648 Big Base Racer (VIN: EXP3 HB) was restored years ago and since spent its time in private museums. It was apparently last run 5-6 years ago. The seller gives a story of Bobby Hallowell, a friend of Steve Dupont, the individual who developed the Big Base bikes. According to the seller, 13 cases were cast before factory release, and this is #3. Only about 30 factory racers were eventually built, and this is one of the very few (maybe only?) remaining prototypes.
