1941 Indian 741 Flathead Bobber

Dave from Holland, Michigan, United States made available these photos of this 1941 Indian 741 Flathead Bobber that was built by his friend Jack "475".

This is an Indian with a history. She started life in 1941 as a 500cc for the U.S. war government. 500cc was the standard military model size for Indians. She was then converted to 750cc for flat track racing with a Sport Scout crank and topend. (750cc was the displacement for flat tracking) Jack then converted her back to street use, adding brakes, proper lights, battery, larger seat, etc....

Normally, a Bobber is created by removing anything from the bike that does not add to speed or accelleration. Jack's Indian Bobber is very special in the sense that she was created by adding stuff...
