one of Indian's first-ever racing and factory-built superbikes capable of 120 mph, once owned by a renowned South American racer was garaged in the 1930s. It was recently found in Uruguay, and now it's heading to auction

It was originally imported to Uruguay by a racer named Lucchese, who intended to race it in South America. Finding no class of competition to equal its performance, the motorcycle was used in exhibition races and the like until sometime in the 1930s, when it was stored in a garage.


  1. I'll tell ya, someone had really big brass ones to go 120 on that thing!

    1. I bet they were young, and excited to get paid to ride instead of working on a farm!
