Indian - "Camel back" replica - 1901

Description
Indian - "Camel back" replica - 1901
Condition: For decoration purposes - Registration papers: No - Location: Poland

Replica of the first Indian motorcycle, nicknamed "Camel back" because of its hump-shaped fuel tank sitting atop of the rear mudguard.

That original machine was powered by a 15.85 ci (260 cc) ‘F-head’ (inlet over exhaust) single cylinder, integrated in the frame and sloped rearwards to act as the seat tube.

The model became very successful and was produced substantially unchanged until 1905, when a sprung fork and twist-grip throttle and ignition control were adopted.

This item is not an original but a modern reproduction built in Poland, fitted with a distinct engine, and is not in running conditions. For decoration purposes only.
