THEY JUST LOSE A LITTLE COMPRESSION
Kelly Wardell, a member of the Sunflower Chapter the Antique Motorcycle Club of America is pictured attempting to diagnose the loss of compression symptom that saw his motorcycle begin to limp along on one cylinder during the recent AMCA Black Hills run based at the Holiday Inn, at Spearfish South Dakota. The good news is that the AMCA has enough nation wide members and sources to have the compression problem fixed in a jiffy. No space age electronics to be diagnosed here, just a simple mechanical fix and Kelly will be back on the road. The motorcycle is a 101 Indian Scout, and capable of more than 100 MPH when everything is working correctly. Indian 101 Scouts were the fast kids on the block way back when Indian was Harley-Davidson Motor Company's only real competitor. Also pictured is a pristine 1951 Indian Chief that is being ridden across the USA and back by it's owner. It is of course a Bagger, but only the bare necessities are seen on this overland two wheeler. Three days of ridng the Black Hills were capped with a banquet and three hours of socializing in the American motorcycle rider tradtion. Local AMCA member Jason Simms and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend this years banquet, and hang out with club members. See ya next year...I sincerely hope!
