One and only Scout in Switzerland so far reads est. 1901.
Agreed. I hope that the Scout on the German website is just a pre-production, dumb marketing badge. Personally, I wish it were blank, there is way too much badging on this bike as it is. But supersizing motor displacement is completely bogus.
I was at Hernley when 2 Scouts arrived for show. Out of the trailer, they had 1200 on them. The dealer had been waiting with new plates and the 1200 was quickly replaced with est 1901.I'd swear I've seen both numbers. For those fortunate enough to have your Scout, which number is it? Thanks.
No! That was for the first 1901 Chiefs/Chieftains built, nothing to do with the Scout.Other than nostalgia for the Indian est. date, is there any meaning behind the 1901 badges? I overheard that they symbolize a "special/limited edition" bike--any fact behind this theory?
