Indian offered its first V-Twin in 1907, a 40 cu in unit with atmospheric intake valves. By 1913 it had grown to 61 cu in and boasted overhead intake and side exhaust valves. Though standard model units had a single speed transmission, a two-speed was available as an option.Indian built singles during this period as well, but the V-Twin accounted for 90% of the company’s production. In 1913, a four hp single cost $200.00 while a seven hp went for $250.00. That was clearly for bang for the buck.New for 1913, was a “Cradle Spring Frame” that incorporated the world’s first swing arm rear suspension. However, for those suspicious of the new technology, a rigid frame was available. Braking was accomplished with an internal shoe/external band rear brake.Offered from the Paul Hedburn collection is a 1913 Indian V-Twin 61 motorcycle in excellent condition. It is ready to show or ride and represents one of the earliest V-Twin motorcycles built in the USA.- V-Twin 7 hp engine- Mint condition- From the Paul Hedburn collection- No Reserve
