1936 Indian Chief.

I don't draw bikes very often as they're more fiddly than cars, but I still like them a lot...

Thanks very much :)

I love lots of old bikes as well, I guess I just never get round to doing them as since you see all the little details of the mechanics and engine (unlike cars) they're so much more work... still I was happy with the result and surely will do more in future.

Oh yeah!
My Uncle Bill had a couple of old Indian bikes.
You did a great job on this one, fiddly or not.
It's a very good piece of work! :clap:

Thanks very much :)

I know the guy who owns the european rights to the name; and makes new Indians; it was after visiting him and seeing the bikes again that I remembered how much I liked them and decided to do a drawing of one... very good-looking bikes indeed !

You're welcome!
So they have Indian bikes in Europe?

Yep :)

Not made by the american factory or anything though... I imagine that before, they would have been exported, but my friend bought the european rights to the name, and now makes brand new ones - I think the model he makes is the Dakota 4. I prefer the older, less 'blocky' shapes myself; but it was still interesting to see his work.
