Came across two elderly dudes wrenching their 1922 Indian hillclimber while attending my childrens Speedway practice at the local speedway track.

I always dig the honest engine close up shots. with the oil sheen from drips, grit, and tool marks gracing all the hardware.

Great to see an old survivor like that. You can tell someone has disassembled that engine and given it some special attention more than a few times.

It's cool to see an old side-valve like that in a natural, greasy kind of condition. I've always wanted to see some of those old museum pieces in a similar state: Loud and dripping. :)

always amazes me how much cool vintage iron is hidden away down here in oz
If you're from Vic/melb area the shop is sure worth a visit.
Spend a few years in Melbourne and went to the shop once in a while, just looking around. :)
