Dealers Stickers 2.0

The Indian sticker is from Jeff Decker's blog. The Albuquerque sticker is from Robbie in Taos.

UPDATE - I was curious if Robbie had anything from an Albuquerque Triumph dealer, or for that matter if Albuquerque even had a Triumph dealer in the late 60's. That guy is a wealth of information.

I do not have anything for Triumph in ABQ. The dealer in the late '50s and 60's were the Bodwell family, they also sold Cushman scooters. Al Simonson was the Indian dealer in the 30s and 40s. He took on Triumph back in the 50s but then sold it on to take on Honda. Bobby J bought the Indian franchise when they imported Brit stuff before he took on Yamaha. Tommy Jacobs was another Indian dealer for a while in the late 40s and 50s. Joe Turney sold BSA and Jawa/CZ, Rissman motors sold Norton and Moto Guzzi.

Thats' the classic Indian head in the first one, but I've never seen him with a helmet added...
