Indian Military Motorcycle, World War II

When the US War Department asked American motorcycle manufacturers to come up with military machines for World War II, Harley and Indian answered the call.

Indian created the Model 841 and built more than 1,000 for tests but these never saw action. Instead, Indian's 500cc V-twin 741 augmented Harley-Davidson's 750cc V-twin WLA 45.
