Gorgeous 4's! Would be very cool for Indian to build a new inline water cooled 4 cylinder at around 2.3 litres in a Roadmaster package
Just remember, Henderson designed and built that 1200cc inline air-cooled 4 lighter than today's Royal Enfield single cylinder 500cc bike. The Indian Chief of today is over double that weight.

The museum is now run by volunteers from Marquette. Stan's wife LaVona passed in 2014.
Thanks for the heads info. I was there in 2013 I think and she was very friendly to us. Sorry to hear she passed too.

I was there about that time as well and she was very nice. Museum is still going strong, was there about 5 months ago.

When you think about that, it was quite an accomplishment, a very potent compact package, a real speedster! =)
