Man, I can't believe I didn't know about this site before now! Holy cow! This place is killer! I have a '52 K-model, a '58 KR Franken-racer a '39 Indian Jr. Scout and a '49 F-1 Ford Pickup, so I hope I qualify for being a flathead freak.
Anyway, I literally just got the Indian, and I've never had an Indian before and I've been researching the heck out of them. This one is a 1939 Junior Scout 30.50. I've read through this site and understand that they are confused with 741's, etc. This one is without a doubt a 1939 Jr. Scout. The frame, engine and tranny, are all complete. As is the primary, secondary and rear wheel. I'm going to be restoring it as a flattrack/boardtrack type bobber and am needing a front end for it. I'm sure they are hard to come by, but I gotta start somewhere. I really want to run a girder, and if I can't find or afford the correct front end, then I'll probably just modify an aftermarket girder or British bike girder to work.
If you've seen the Thunder Racing '38 Junior Scout, then you know exactly what I'm trying to build here.
I know they are underpowered, but my K and KR have plenty of power. I just want this one to run and look good for the occasional car/bike show or blast around town. I may bore and or stroke it down the line if I end up riding it more than I anticipate right now, but for now I'm just looking to restore it stock minus some of the unnecessary parts.
Also, do you know if the correct front end for this model was used on other models as well? Thanks for any input, suggestions, responses, etc. What a cool forum!
