Indian motorcycle motors in 1950

Popular Mechanics, January 1950
Imagine, a 750cc twin with 10 to 15 horsepower! Wow!  Now imagine it in your toboggan sled!  

In 1950 they couldn't give these things away!  Indian itself declared bankruptcy 3 years later.

Still, $60 was probably more than a weeks pay for the average guy in 1950, Not cheap!

Also, the 741 was a 500, not a 750.
