Indian Day-NHRA Museum

Post  CrashAdams on Wed 29 Oct 2008, 3:11 pm

The "2nd Annual Indian Day" was held in conjunction with California M/C Week (Love Ride) at the Pomona Fairplex in SoCalif over the past weekend. A good crowd and a decent amount of various Indians present. From Louis Fisher's hill climber, to a gathering of Scout flattrackers and Kiwi's collection of originals and replicas; it was a very nice event. With the first event in 2006, hopefully they can continue and grow this event.
Also, for all gearheads, the NHRA Musuem can't be beat. From Darryl Waltrip's NASCAR Monte Carlo to Chi-Town Hustler AA/FC, Joe Amato's Top Fueler and a collection of drag bikes and Mickey Thompson's 4 engined Bonneville racer ,this museum had a lot to offer. Unfortunately, I forgot the camera, so hopefully others can post up some pics. Laughing

Legends Live On at the 2nd Annual Indian Motorcycle Day

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
October 27, 2008

Legends lived on at the Second Annual Indian Motorcycle Day, in conjunction with California Bike Week, at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum on October 25, 2008, sponsored by Coker Tire and Duke Video USA.



In honor of Harley Davidson and Indian Motorcycles, the Museum opened its doors – free of charge- for a legends tribute to some of the first vintage, classic and antique motorcycles to hit the pavement. Willie G. Davidson, grandson of William Davidson - one of the founders of Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, was spotted among spectators captivated by the motorcycle nostalgia.


A bare-metal, rustic motorcycle display greeted spectators as they entered the Museum. Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off participant Shinya Kimura, originator of the Samurai Chopper put together an artistic motorcycle display for the Museum which includes custom bikes designed for some celebrity clients such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Shinya and his crew from Zero Engineering rescue forgotten motorcycles and bring them back to life. Vintage motorcycles, along with Shinya’s display will be exhibited at the Museum through February 2009.

Crowds packed one of the Museum’s exhibit halls to get a feel for how it’s like to ride 355 mph, and the man to tell them how it’s done was Sam Wheeler, engineer, builder, and rider of the E-Z-Hook Motorcycle Streamliner - one of the world’s fastest motorcycles.

Following Sam’s built-for-speed discussion, the sleepy Indians and Harleys were brought back to life with a cruise through Bonnelli Regional Park. Thanks to several event supporters including Eric Vaughn, Indian Motorcycles “Kiwi Indian” Shop in Riverside, CA, Southern California Antique Motorcycle Club and others.
