VERY RARE 1905 Indian MOTOCYCLE Brochure made by Hendee Mfg. Motorcycles

This is a MUST HAVE professional reproduction/reprint of a VERY RARE Hendee Mfg. Co. 1905 Indian Motorcycle Sales Brochure. It measures 8-3/4” x 6” and is packed with 16 pages of priceless historical information.

This brochure starts out announcing it is their “FOURTH annual greeting” for the “Indian MOTOCYCLE.” (Note the spelling they use of MOTOCYCLE instead of MotoRcycle.)

They also proudly state their Motocycle was acknowleged as the winner of the great “Endurance Contests of 1902, 1903 and 1904” as well as winning the “highest honors at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.”

There is also a section about “Scalps of the Trail” describing contest and trophies won, including the statement, “It has won every endurance run held in America.”

“July 4, 5, 1902 was held the first Motocycle Endurance Run in this country, the course Boston to New York, a distance of two hundred and 45 miles.” Three Indian Motocycles were in that race and all three won Gold Medals.

“In a ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco, a distance of 470 miles, the Indian made it in 3 days; one day shorter than the automobile record. The route lay over two mountain ranges with exceedingly steep grades.”

Other interesting and valuable information details their “range of speed from six to forty miles an hour” using a Hedstrom 1-1/2 horse power engine, an imported English Brooks Saddle and that it was available in Royal Blue as a “regular” finish but “Black, bright Vermilion, or handsome dark Green will be furnished on order.”

They also state their gas tank holds “a shade less then one gallon” of gas and “will drive the machine from 75 to 85 miles.

If you enjoy historical information about the early days of motorcycles and motorcycle related events in this country, this brochure will be an extremely valuable asset.
Here are some images of Attachments you can add to your bike.

Just in case anyone thinks we made a typo in the spelling of the Name Indian Motorcycle above, we did NOT. During the early years that Hendee Mfg was producing the Indian, it was referred to as Indian MOTOCYCLES.

And if anyone wants to find out just how rare those books are, we encourage you to conduct a search on line and see how many copies you can find, other then the ones re-produced by American Legacies and made from the ORIGINALS.
