A collector friend of the shop brought by this beautiful original paint Hendee Indian racing bike. I couldn’t find much online about Indian racing bikes but he headbadge suggest it was built before 1923, because the design changed that year. This bicycle is equipped with BSA cranks, bottom bracket and hubs, Duckworth block chain, wood rims, Troxel leather saddle, and Standard toe clips, and what appears to be Torrington pedals. It was originally sold here in Philadelphia on Broad Street, at Star Cycle Company. The color and boxlining are excellent, what a cool bike!

  1. Hello
    I believe I may have the ladies version of this bike. The bike I have is missing the badge, but frame is very similar (except it is ladies) and it has an odometer on front wheel like the one you have pictured. It has beautiful wood rims but missing tires.
    Have you learned anything else about your?
