Very cool....2 rail Box cars full of Indian bicycles, sweet.I couldn’t edit into my previous post, but I found a few more tidbits of information about this shop that I wanted to add.
Sorry for the poor quality photo’s.
This is all that was available.
It does appear, that the shop was in a converted house, which seems to be long gone in the satellite photo’s on the previous page.
But, this definitely looks like it was a thriving shop back in its day.
I like how the Indian bicycles stood tall right alongside their motorized brethren.
That could be my bike up on that pile.
And here’s Big Jim himself, war bonnet and all.
With his wife Clara.
And a nice letter from the manufacturer, about how much they appreciate Big Jim’s efforts over there in Harley Country.
It’s always fun to see what information can be gleaned from that little point of purchase decal, that sometimes adorns these bikes when they are found.
