Looks more like a bicycle, but this was nirvana in 1903
POSSIBLY the oldest unrestored Indian motorcycle is soon to be auctioned.
The 1903 Indian motorcycle originated from the world of velodrome bicycle racing and it was originally described as a motorized-bicycle. Despite its current state, this Indian has been enjoying retirment for many years, having spent the last 30 hanging on a dentist's wall.
"As far as we know, this is the only unrestored 1903 still in existence" says Steve Rinker, who runs Buck's Indian, an Indian motorcycle restoration firm.
Estimates vary but it's expected to reach in excess of £70,000
