Title Indian Scout 101, 1929
Object ID CVHM-2006.15
Description Responding to feedback from racers, the original Indian Scout introduced in 1920 was updated with key modifications, making the new Scout 101 one of the most popular models ever built. Charles Franklin tweaked his original design, creating a bike that for years was a favorite among racers even though actual production years were few due to the onset of the Depression. The Scout 101 had a stronger frame, larger wheelbase, an increased fork rake, a front brake and a low 26¼ inch seat height. George Yarocki, local Indian collector and restorer, and former owner of this Scout 101 states "It's a beautiful combination of weight and design ... it handles like no other Indian motorcycle before or since.''
