1938 Indian Arrow, the First Streamliner

Long before Burt Munro came to Bonneville with his Indian Scout, Harley and Indian were fighting it out for the fastest motorcycle.  Harley set a record of 136.183 miles per hour in 1937 and Indian was out on the salt the next year trying for their own record.  An interesting bit of history showing how far Harley and Indian would go to try and be on top.  The Indian Arrow was a first step towards the modern streamliners that race on the salt today.

Nice, but these guys generally dont give a fuck about things like this.
Unless youre calling someone a puff, poofta or  (whatever the fuck) or impostering someone else theres little legit interest.
 Now granted, some of the shit is funny. not much, but some.

so if you are legit, Jim, are we talking EL or FL?
