Indian Motorcycles 1930-1939


The Art Deco era hits the Indians adorned in a full range of Duco colors, two-tone designs, pinstriping, and decals.  Two new lightweight models debut in 1932, the Motoplane and the Pony Scout.  “Iron Man” Ed Kretz, aboard a Sport Scout, laps the entire field in his win at the 1937 inaugural Daytona 200.  With the onset of World War II in 1939, the focus again shifts to providing the War Department with motorcycles.  The government of France orders 5,000 Chiefs with sidecars.
