It’s amazing to see how badly banged up these Indians are relative to the total lack of injuries displayed by the men holding them up, I assume they’re the riders but I can’t see so much as a scratch on them. If you look closely at the Indian board tracker second in from the left you’ll notice that the engine is actually bent along with the frame, it takes a very large off to achieve that.
There’s nothing quite like the process of pulling apart, fixing and rebuilding a vintage engine. You get extra points for completing this task if the engine in question is British or Italian of course, along with a tidy little bonus point if the engine is pre-1980. None of these points will do you any good…

When it comes to ’60s supercars, you’ll be hard pressed to find something more iconic than the 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S ‘SV Specification’ – Its low profile, mid-mounted V12, independent front and rear suspension and four-wheel disc brakes left the Miura in a world of its own from a performance perspective and it’s fair to say that it gave the boys over at Ferrari more than a few sleepless nights.
