Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Military Motorcycles: 1938 Indian

Posted June 21, 2011 6:00 AM by dstrohl

When the first shots of the upcoming Captain America movie were released, everybody seemed displeased that a modern V-twin was dolled up as a World War II-era motorcycle. Now, if the producers had intended to go 100 percent authentic, they couldn't have done much better than to have used this 1938 Indian. From the description:

"This is an original Military Indian that runs with everything operable. Complete with night lights, leather machine gun holder, pistol case, Helmet with goggles (no lens), saddle bags, shovel and various army fatigues, all strapped down ready for battle. The odometer shows 20,204. The bike appears to be complete and in excellent condition."
