Social media was ablaze on Saturday night, after legendary outlaw country star Willie Nelson walked on and off the stage twice at PNC Music Pavilion.(He reportedly threw his cowboy hat into the crowd during his second trip.) An hour later, it was announced that his set was canceled.Next is a photo kindly submitted by Ed Gregory of his grandfather also on a 1906 Camelback, at Wincester NH. Not sure of the Indian model, looks like a Camelback engine but the fuel tank is in the traditional position and not over the rear fender, so perhaps a successor to the Camelback.Luckily only the edges of the 110 year old photo have deteriorated. Bob and I would like to know what years this model was made so he can estimate the date of the photo.Sort of ironic that their first mass produced model was more advanced in that regard than their last Chiefs which were just L (flat) heads.Those very early Indians only produced a bit over two (2) horsepower.If you like country rock and 1950's rock'n'roll music and songs about old Harleys, BSAs, and classic cars (Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Mercury, Dodge and others) visit Randyandthe ATTENTION BUSINESSES and advertisers: Site Statistics AUG.

Put in the self defense and you get ten times the health, and one of the most combat effective martial arts in the world. In 1914 Indian had been the first with both electric lighting and an electric starter.All very advanced but they did not continue with the electric starters longer than six years.The Trev Deeley museum in Vancouver BC Canada kindly emailed me and said they also thought it was a 1906 as they have one on display.The Camelback was advanced in that the engine also served as the seat post (instead of a frame tube there, to save weight) and because it was an F head (inlet over exhaust valving).It's being billed as "Willie Nelson & Friends," with no specifics on the "Friends" part given just yet.Attendees of the Saturday show say that Sturgill Simpson gave an electric performance that evening.To see my styling designs for custom cruisers using classic V twin and other engines check out my new website Custom Cruiser Concepts Copyright (except where noted) 2000- 2016 by J.
