Captain Lowell Smith

Here's another Douglas World Cruiser related post. One of the eight American crewmen who set out to circumnavigate the earth in 1924 was also an active Seattle area motorcyclist. Captain Lowell Smith is pictured below with his Indian and one of the Douglas World Cruisers. This is an interesting photo to illustrate the sheer size of the World Cruiser. Lowell's Indian appears to have 28" wheels. Compare them to the landing gear.
