Description

Lot #2058 - The ultimate expression of the American inline 4 cylinder motorcycle, Indian's 401 would define the smooth, quiet 4 cylinder motorcycle for nearly a generation of riders. Formerly of the Otis Chandler Collection, this 1929 Indian 401 has been restored to as-new condition and is ready to be ridden (startup instructions are included). Powered by a 77.2cid F-head inline four with a 3-speed gearbox and kick starter, brakes consist of a contracting drum brake (rear) and enclosed, expanding drum brake (front). In keeping with Indian's legacy, shifts are accomplished via a chromed shift lever capped by a black ball positioned at the rider's right knee. One could spend hours simply admiring the numerous cast aluminum structures that make up the engine and transmission unit. The symmetry of the streamlined 4-port exhaust manifold and finned cylinder barrels elevates this stunning early luxury motorcycle into the realm of art. **SOLD ON BILL OS SALE ONLY**
