Indian 1920 powerplus Big Valve 2 cyl 1000 cc sv



Indian PowerPlus 1920      “Big Valve”   998 cc side valve  V- twin  engine #  75 R 692

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 virtually complete and will be a straightforward restoration
Including carb, inlet manifold and oil tank. 
All parts are original, no repro items!
