I personaly think there is a Family conection between Guzzi and Injun so why not have it here.....The Indian 841 was only ever used in Italy during the end of WW2 then a few years later Guzzi came out with their bike.....bit more than a coincident I reckon!!!........

the Indian was a side valve but the motor layout is so simular and had features that also showed up un the Guzzi........

it has been said that IF Indian had kept at this design they may not have gone down the pan in the 50's.....who knows.....
