Before his days on History Channel’s American Pickers, Mike was still chasing leads all around the country, looking for his next treasure. In the following clip, his sources take him to Florida where he finds an original Indian motorcycle that hasn’t been out of it’s crate since the 70s!
Original Indian motorcycles were produced from 1901 to 1953 (by the Hendee Manufacturing Company, which changed its name to the Indian Motocycle Manufacturing Company in 1928). Finding an original is quite rare, especially in the condition that Mike found his bike in!
Take a look at the following clip to learn more. It’s kind of fun to see Mike before his cable TV days, still as passionate as ever!
