    It's been raining off and on here so of course I was out in the more obscure junkyards looking for "new' (only 42 years old) truck parts , getting soaked in mud and ran across this :

    I was wondering if anyone else knows what it is ? .

    Don't laugh OK ! my name is not
    Mike Wolfe or Frank Fritz :D
    Just thought to take a stab at it...
    A 39 Harley UL Flathead ?
    I did get lost in looking at the head fins... :rolleyes:

    Well now that I took a shot and blew it.

    Will add Nate in reading the back pages in the
    old database here on the forums. I did learn
    what the color code for Suburban
    interior poop brown colors were.
    Wicker Brown and Pecan Brown --:cool:
    Shot the codes off to an Automotive paint specialist site----
    And they after entering the code info
    said they came up with "Blue":confused:
    Question ? Who ....Blue it ? ... :eek::D
    Nice Looking Flathead -whatever it is-:cool:
    Nice Find :)

    It's the engine and trans from an Indian Motocycle .

    I too am amused by the names of colors....

    Sadly I don't know a whole lot about Indians, when I rode American Motocycles I had a 1937 Harley EL (KnuckleHead 61") and a 1965 FL (74" low compression ex L.A.P.D.) so I used to know those backwards and forwards, I'm not a big fan of any FlatHeads because they're not good for burning up the miles as I like to do .

    This could be a Scout or Chief for all I know, I'm just pleased to see it not in a junkpile .
