When you look at a Indian 741 B Military motorcycle you are
witness to another world. It`s a time machine from the most brutal and
crucial period of the 20th century. Within the pages of this book you`ll
witness war and see the battlefield the 741 was designed to fight on:
deserts, tropics and muddy tracks in every combat theater. It saw
shelling by german 88`s, was ambushed in the jungles of Burma, shot
at by german snipers, took part of the battle of Monte Cassino and
was there at the fall of Berlin. It`s compact and heavy like a goldbar,
with a brutal sound like an ancient roar from the past.
This book is in two parts: WAR followed by PEACE. The first part
covers the service of the Indian 741 with the military in wartime.
Included in part one are images from different battlegrounds such as
North Africa, Italy, France and the Pacific. It also includes images of
how present day owners preserve and celebrate the history of this
iconic motorcycle.
The second part, it`s usage in peacetime by police forces and in
civilian form as a foundation for building twenty first century versions
of the Sport Scout, choppers, bobbers and even land speed record
breakers.
