July 15th 2015: 8 Cylinders of Fun- Ken Campbell & the V8 Indian

  • Special Guests: Ken Campbell, builder and owner of the one-of-a kind V8 Indian

Motorcyclists around the world can agree that while the various motorcycle manufacturers have provided an impressive and unique field of machines to pick from when purchasing, sometimes it is the homebuilt machines that outclass the line-production items. More often than not, it is these handcrafted pieces of art that are engineered and built in method that far surpasses that of a factory, and leaves enthusiasts scratching their heads and wondering just why the manufacturer never created such a piece. This week on Classic Chrome, we are joined by a man who has built such a machine. Old motorcycle fans can all appreciate the appeal of an Indian Four; the sound, aesthetic qualities and performance of what is essentially a small car engine in a motorcycle frame speak for themselves. But what if the Springfield, Massachusetts-based company had offered an eight cylinder model? Unfortunately, with the death of Springfield Indian in 1953, that question was unanswered. However, New Zealand motorcycle enthusiast Ken Campbell has just finished engineering and building the first example of what such a machine would resemble. Join us at 7pm Central on the Road Hawgs Radio Network as Ken Campbell joins the show live from New Zealand to discuss this monumental accomplishment.
