You Can't Wear Out an Indian Scout : Indians and the Wall of Death Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Indian Scout motorcycle is the favoured mount for Wall of Death riders all over the world.

Drawing upon modern and archive material, Wall of Death owner and rider Allan Ford and author Nick Corble explore the reasons behind this relationship and bring the story of the Wall up to date, including behind the scene details of the latest Wall of Death speed record achieved by Guy Martin.

It's a story that spans more than a century, starting with experiments with motorised bicycles in the 1890s, passing through two world wars and ending by looking to a future where Indians continue to be restored and ridden on the Wall. As this book makes clear, the relationship between Indians and the Wall of Death is one that will never be broken.

As Sammy Pierce, at one time the world's largest Indian motorcycle dealer once put it:You can't wear out an Indian Scout,Or its brother the Indian Chief. They're built like rocks to stand hard knocks,It's the Harleys that cause the grief.
