1918 Indian Powerplus 61”
The Indian Powerplus engine was a design of Charles Gustafson, who had already earned fame as an engine designer at the Reading Standard company before he was approached by the Indian management.
His task was to design a powerful, robust, single, reliable and production friendly engine to replace the old F-head V-twin-design of Oscar Hedstrom.
The resulting 61” Powerplus introduced in 1916 was an immediate success and is still one of the most coveted American vintage motorcycles.
The model on offer was produced in 1918 .
The 1918 was also the first year of the Bowden control type cables.
