Indian Motorcycle Factory Photos from 1908

It would be another 20 years before the Hendee Manufacturing Company would change their name to the Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company that we are all familiar with.  Still, they had been producing Indian Motorcyles since 1901, two years earlier than the first Harley-Davidson.  These photos were taken at their Springfield, MA factory in 1908.  In this collection you'll find photos of early V-twin engines being assembled, frame building and some sheet metal work.
