Indian
USA, Started in 1901 by George Hendee and Oscar Hedstrom in Massachusetts. They battled with HD on the race track and in the marketplace. The company was taken over by a British company called Brockhouse in 1950 and then combined into the English AMC group who stopped its production in 1953. Trademark name Indian was purchased in 1998 and again new Indian models were produced and Indian became a well known name. Unfortunately in 2003 due to unstable financial backing Indian again went bankrupt. This was unfortunate because the new Indian Motorcycles were outstanding. Again the Indian trademark name was purchased by a UK investment firm Stellican. Apparently they specialize in the revival of ‘heritage’ brands and plan to rebuild the firm from the ground up
