In the Family

As some of you know, my grandfather was the president of Indian Motorcycle Company in the 40's and 50's. He lost a lot of money in the company, worked the hardest perhaps that he ever did, and had memories for a lifetime.

When my grandmother passed away just a short while ago, my father and I went through her trunk, and I copied a few photographs from the Indian Days.

These will soon be enlarged and hung with pride at the LM facility.

Can you see the smile in his face. This is the way I feel every day when I go to work.

Oh my, I did not know about the connection to Indian. I hope you have sent copies of these pics to Steve Heese and Stephen Julius. Their museum will love them.
My Dad had one of those bikes during WWII.
