1905 Indian

Indian was a leader in early motorcycle design, registering many patents on components that are still used today. This 1905 model was called a camelback, due to the shape and location of the gas tank. These machines were extremely well constructed and often over-engineered. Colors available were Indian red, blue, black and green. These early Indians were really the first motorcycles to be mass produced in large numbers.
