Indian 1919 Powerplus 1000 cc 2 cyl sv



Indian PowerPlus 1919  998 cc side valve  V- twin  engine #  89M677

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, reliable and production friendly engine to replace the old F-head V-twin design of Oscar Hedstrom. The resulting 61” side valve PowerPlus introduced in 1916 was an immediate success and this model is still one of the most coveted American vintage motorcycles. 
Power developed is a healthy 18 BHP.  
This machine is unrestored but  complete and has been  fitted with new tyres and petrol tank. 
Note the nice authentic  search  lights!
