Just to keep the record straight, Mr Rogers, President of the Indian Motor Cycle Co., met with Phil Vincent in 1949 to discuss using Vincent twin engines in their bikes. A Chief was duly sent to Stevenage UK; to quote Phil Vincent, "In due course this arrived late in August and Phil Irving and his merry boys in the drawing office had the engine incorporated into the Indian frame so neatly that it looked as if the frame had been specially designed to fit the engine........In spite of our efforts we did not receive any orders for Vindians for the simple reason that Mr Rogers (also Vincent importer) thought that the Black Shadows and Rapides were far better motorcycles and more suited to their market."

Wot about the Nimbus.
Could almost have been the K's great grandad.
Quite a cool look and I believe they were made until not that long ago. Dammit, showing my age again.
Good sidecar tug, Paul.

LOL, I am with you on this one... The oldest thing I ever owned was a 1969 CB250, closely followed by 1971 CB750 Honda Four and that is as old as I would ever go as a hobby/daily ride bike. Never had to kick start anything, thank you Honda SmileSmile

Don't get me wrong, love to own one of the very old twins, but it would be to do this :

Jee Ned you've got alot of windows in your shed mate, nicely set out too, Bet the other side is all grease and beer bottles hey?
Comberjohn that would have been a better one to use a K engine in for sure
Paul for 20 years I thought Indian wanted a better engine for their cheif's. Never knew the truth I had seen this photo in an Bike Australia mag back in mid eighties and just thought the old sidevalve was overheating and they wanted a better motor for the revheads of the day. Actually I'd even be happy with it to use today
Now who's got spare Nimbus parts?
