It's hard to say of I like the reborn Indian brand recently sold to the Canadian Polaris/Bombardier/Victory conglomerate. Indian went out of business in 1953 and came back to life decades later in Gilroy California and that failed after a while.
I was at school years ago with a child who has become a venture capitalist in adulthood reviving failed corporate "brands" and then after building it up selling it. His name trumpeted in the motorcycling press is Stephen Julius and if you have $35,000 to spare on a bone shaker you too can have one of these over priced pieces of nostalgia.
It's a pretty piece of work but the magazines report it shakes like a cement mixer and gets rather tiring.
But it is pretty. My Bonneville a nostalgia trip but at $8,000 my bike is decidedly a better value.
It is pretty though isn't it? I can't get away from it.
For those not amused by motorcycles, the philistines, here is a picture of my dog, resting from her labors.
