Wow. Check out this Indian sidecar!

Two friends of the shop, Mike and Sandy, pulled into our parking lot this week, riding this beauty.

Yes, it's in Indian motorcycle with a custom tub. A sidecar! We only have a few of them in Tucson, mainly Ural machines.

The style is a 1930 Art Deco, with the 4 accent lines that are not without reminding us of the Yamaha Roadliner.

The quilted seat is beautiful, the valance of the tub fender very graceful and completed by classic teardrop taillights. Of note too, the door cut out in the frame of the tub. Unusual in vintage-style tubs which, in the main, force passengers to throw a leg over the side to enter or get out. The windshield is high and wide, protecting the passenger well from rain and road projections.

A solid design feature is the long pipes, which seem to be well baffled to protect the passenger ears. Finally, we admired the satin finish of the paint job which extends to the back of the mirror, showing a great level of attention to details.

A beautiful ride, indeed.
