1943 Indian Engine Crate

Post by ghengus » Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:02 am

I am not an expert in the field of military mototorcycles but wanted to get opinions on this 1943 dated Indian motorcycle engine crate. Picked up yesterday at an antique store and couldn't pass it up. Was Indian known for stamping their logo like this on their larger crates? Thanks.

That is an awesome crate and not sure if it is original or if someone made it. Either way it is a great display piece. If you decide to part with it keep me posted. Mark.
