This incredibly reliable machine was advertised with the slogan, “You can’t wear out an Indian Scout.” One of these machines set a 24-hour record in 1920, covering 1,114 miles! The low build and stability of the Scout made it very popular for stunt riding, with a few machines still in use today at carnivals. This example is original and unrestored, and will remain in this condition.
