Indian Motorcycles @ Springfield Museum

Not many people know about this hidden gem but about 1-1/2hours west of Boston is a city called Springfield, and they have an amazing Museum comprised of 5 Museums in 1 location! 1 of the Museum is called the Museum of Springfield History and they displayed a few dozen Indian Motorcycles which were produced in this city from 1901 until going bankrupt in 1953. Pretty amazing motorcycles and they were recently acquired by Polaris Industries.

Such fun drawings. They really convey shine and texture of the bikes. Very much in character - you can almost smell oil and gas.
