The Indian Scout was introduced in 1920 – eight years later the 101 Scout was released and some motorcycles consider it to be the most iconic Indian motorcycle ever built thanks to a bevy of racing-inspired upgrades. Said upgrades included a stronger frame, improved suspension, a longer wheelbase, and a front brake. However as the Great Depression took hold, Indian had to cut costs and after 4 years they had tamed the 101 by forcing the Scout to share frames with the bigger and heavier Chief.

This example is being offered by the Wheels Through Time museum, who say that it ran a year ago and was in the same family for the last 60 years. Flaws include a missing left floorboard and a Harley brake lever, but it’s got no reserve so this bike will actually change hands.
