It is a shame that they have always been "collector" and "collection" bikes, nice Italian frame, light, fine steering, best wheels and brakes...I am sure the Goodmans looked at it and at their capitalization very longingly.
I wanted one from the moment they appeared here in Clymer's magazine.

Some one in Aus. made up a batch of the big magnesium front brakes that the factory made for the projected 4 cyl. GP bike, but I have never been able to find any details on it.

Had a chance to buy one of those Clymer-Indian Velocettes in Richmond, VA a few years back, and never pulled the trigger. Now I wish I had, they're unique bikes ....

I had mine up for sale on CL with no real interest, at $15K USD considering it is essentially a brand new bike. A ratty used early model sold at the Vegas auction a couple of years ago for $12K and the only other for sale now is in the UK at $20K UKP which is somewhat high in my opinion. I do need a new silencer for it which is now being made by Meerkat. Once I have that fitted I'll have it chromed... so a while yet before the bike is 100%. As usual I need to fund other projects which is the reason for this sale. It's shown here running without the silencer Indian Velo running I'm somewhat torn about selling it actually. But please contact me if interested. The bike is in Oregon USA.
