An extremely rare maroon painted Indian bicycle, manufactured for the Indian Motocycle Company, Springfield, Massachusetts by AGA of Germany. This model was exclusively made for Indian and was sold through their motorcycle dealers and retailers. The bicycle was only produced for two years and was discontinued to strained political issues with Germany. It is the only bicycle ever produced with a flexible mono-frame that incorporates a "tool box" tank that emulates a motorcycle fuel tank. This example is thought to have been an Indian employee owned test bike as it adorned with a Springfield, Mass. license plate and has some minor variations not present on the production models. The bicycle is shown here in Joshua Tree National Park, California. Please contact dealer for full photograph portfolio and condition report. Reference: Sotheby's Motorcycles and Bicycles, September 16, 2000 for the Schwinn Family Collection Indian bicycle, Lot 72.
