Beautiful Photos of 1940 Indian Sport Scout

The Indian Scout is a motorcycle built by the Indian Motorcycle Company from 1920 to 1949. It rivaled the Chief as Indian's most important model. The 101 Scout, made from 1928 to 1931, has been called the best motorcycle Indian ever made.

The Indian Sport Scout was designed and built to regain the crown that had been lost when the Springfield, Massachusetts-based company discontinued their ever-popular Scout 101 in 1931.

1940 was an important year for the Indian Sport Scout, the model gained full Indian-style fenders for the first time, as well as a slightly lower seat height, and an increased fork rake.

The motorcycle was equipped with a right-side hand shifter feeding into the 3-speed gearbox, with its original braced handlebars, sweeping Indian fenders, and expansive sprung leather saddle. It featured a period-correct horn above its headlight, as well as large comfortable foot boards on either side. The speedometer was mounted in the top of the fuel tank, there are no indicators – just a headlight and brake light.

Here below is a set of beautiful photos of 1940 Indian Sport Scout.
