Can you imagine if they replicated the bike using modern techniques and materials?  That is already stripped down.

Quite convenient to be able to see your combustion flame colour at the head.   :imaposer:  Doesn't look right though.  Right at the riders leg.
If you want to haul ass, you gotta mix gas.

It has been rumoured that the multi valve cylinder head technology came from collaboration with a Japanese company and that Indian later abandoned it as too complex.

Indian were actually well ahead in the technology stakes when they took first three places in the IOM TT in 1911 the first race over the 37 mile mountain circuit.

Their win was due to being the first to use chain drive, clutches and multi speed gearboxes.

I'm not too sure about the purpose of the exhaust flame exit from open ports on the heads when they also had conventional exhaust pipes.  :dontknow:

Unless it was some kind of compression release, or a way for the rider to visually check that the running mixture was right?  ???

Off the cuff I seem to remember reading somewhere that this was indeed done to visually check the combustion - and the blue in the clip indicates it runs very well indeed.

The holes/slots at the bottom of the cylinder I also knew the purpose for but have forgotten it, and could not be arsed to google it - anyone knows??

It's an Indian, possibly just a head gasket leak. :pot: :pot:

Take that video and go a hundred and five years forward in technology. I could not put this video up, but the sound is awesome, trust me. I took a few screen shots. The bloke tried to replicate the Indian. He was a Moron, unlike the Indian.

One bike was indeed hurt in the making of this movie. No Indians got hurt.
