That is a 1909 tag and a $3500 price tag. Seemed way too high, but I also don't know Indian bicycle parts at all. Figured I'd ask some better educated folks. Thanks for the insight everyone! Sounds like just a tribute build.

this is parts patina'd to look old like a antique......it has no collectability parts in my opinion but maybe in the future there will be a following for "the funny and many tribute folk art movement of the 21st century" art?

S'why I really detest "patina made" or "Faux-restorations" the goal is fooling some one...
usually starts out as innocent fun with the buds.... but as time marches on...
stuff changes hands....and shrugs and "I dunno's" start happening...
along with ridiculous price tags and "I think this is very old and rare...." etc etc.....

Just saw this contraption. Can anyone identify if there are some real Indian bike parts on this? Sorry only 1 photo.
Apparently, that 1940-50's upright lawn mower engine, Columbia chain guard, and prob. matched fenders to go with it, CWC fork and reversed Schwinn springer forks mounted completely stupid, and frame contraption that's defiantly Not Indian, has caused this guy to roll over in his grave and smack the glass.

He sure looks awfully P.O.-ed about that POS. like; "This is the real deal Bi-otch". And, "You say another word an I'll reach out and smack! you too!'"
