This is a collectable 1/6th model of a 1920 Indian , there are not many 1/6th model motorcycles around, so are quite rare. It is made by and retails for about $80.00. The of 1/6th means that is a very large model at 15 long and 7 inches high, it just under 2lb.

The is not too bad and there is plenty of detail and as a display piece that’s all you

None of the brake or gear and pedals move, the chain revolve and the front suspension little the bike had anyway) operate. Only the seat is that gives the bike suspension.

I found that the cables can adrift very easily and do not to have been glued on well. The headlight and horn came off after only a few of it being on display. You have to these fragile models great care.

We have to that it is a static display and not a children’s toy, these are meant to be placed on a shelf and there. and dusted off periodically! In respect the bike is an excellent to any motorcycle enthusiasts collection and is an piece to admire.

Guiloy have made a decent model but it is not as good as or Franklin Mint models. is plenty of detail on the engine and all the and electric wiring is present and cables go to their respective around the engine and dynamo.

The common question that is about this model is why are the white and not black? Well the to this is that rubber is white when its manufactured and is later added to dye them There is also a process vulcanization that Charles devised and patented too that all tires go through, that was not applied in the early 1920’s.

So the model is historically accurate in respect and its makes a nice to have a model motorcycle white tires instead of the black. Historic accuracy is of very important with all models and they must be correctly. We can forgive the rear plate for saying the name of the instead of a real registration though.

A very useful and used feature of this is of course the stand. There no side stands on these of bike in the 1920’s they all had a stand that folded up the rear wheel. In many this is the best method of a bike up.

This method is not really that much today. on race bikes, where the is detached and wheeled underneath.

detail to the headlight, its a pity it doesn’t operate to give the a more interesting bit of appeal. it have been an oil or cadmium gas anyway. Note too the leaf suspension set up on these old style The suspension set up was drafted right off a car of the

Later this design to give better road and overall comfort.

It is my only 1/6th scale bike and unless you have of room in your domain its best to collect smaller models. 1/6th scale up a lot of shelf real estate and models need a lot of dusting.

not a bad model, its a bit lacking in some of the details such as moving but apart from that its acceptable. I enjoyed making a about it and it was easy to photograph.

So its a to look out for if you are into collecting model motorcycles, its worth the but don’t expect too much it.
