Hi everyone,  newbie here! Retired military from NSW I normally work on classic chevrolets but have always wanted a pre war bike and finally got the chance -Bought my first indian a 1915 Hedstrom racer and very excited to get into it ! Hoping to find info and other members I can learn from! 

Look forward to meeting/ talking to you all and hopefully getting on a vintage cruise when I'm finished!

This one?

I've seen them in museums, but to hear you want to get it on the road is fantastic.

G'day & welcome Chad.  Love the bike!  Wished I had something older myself (bike that is).  A couple of blokes over here in the West have older Indians but a tad newer than yours, more like post WW1.  Beautiful things & still running.  (not so good on the freeway but what the hey!
Again welcome, will be interested to see how the restoration progresses. 👍

I am a typical Territorian ( we live in our little world ha ha) what is a Bulli Catalogue? I would love to restore a old bike but do not have enough time to play with the toys I already own. I am jealous and also envious . The world needs more people restoring our wonderful past. well done Cobber

It was an auction of vintage bikes from a club a couple of weeks ago run through the manshed auctions.

Kids are like our politicians now getting to soft. Doesn't matter what we say or do we are incorrect with this BS society. I wish I was born another colour they have more opportunities and support than us white folks. My kids are always either embarrassed, laughing or shaking their heads at different things I say or do.
Love your plate
