Garth Hinz got this bike in late 1970's from a basement in Baltimore, MD.  The rear jug was torn off from seizure and sitting for 10 years after a hard days ride. Slowly restored bike and after a few years was on the rode again. A basic restoration, Indian red with the Gold Headdress decal on the gas tanks and a lot of parts cleaned but not replaced due to budget restraints. After 20 years and the typical minor overhauls due an old bike and tired of the stock Indian look, tore into it again. This time still kept it basically stock but with added chrome, a flashy paint job, and all fresh mechanics.  Now have a couple more thousand miles  added on to its long heritage. Riding an old bike is like riding a time machine with having to adjust your spark advance with twist of the hand grip and throttle with the other hand grip, slid the 3 speed tranny forward into 1st using the shift rod located on the left side of the split gas tanks with combination oil tank, ease out the clutch with your left foot while twisting both grips, throttle and spark, and your good to go till next gear change!
