1939 Indian Sport Scout

Congratulations to J. D. Tone of Fountain Valley for winning Bike of the Month with his 1939 Indian Sport Scout.

This bike has been in his family for 65 years. His Dad bought it in 1943 and J. D. inherited it when he passed away in 1963.

The restoration began in 1996 by John Bevins of Stanton and was completed in 1999. It is 100% stock, all Indian parts with one upgrade of Bonneville cams.

This was J. D.'s first time to the vintage meet and the Indian is no trailer-queen. J. D. rides her often and even long distances. This Scout was definitely the crowd favorite today, it took the BotM with with 78% of the votes.

Thanks again J. D. for bring her down for all of us to enjoy.
