This stunning 1911 Big Base, Eight Valve, Indian Board Track Racer is one of only a few known to exist today. Racing the Motrodrome at over 100 mph on this jewel of a bike must have been quite the thrill! I ghosted in a racer and track in the tank reflections.
I photographed this bike at The Mecum Auction in Las Vegas. It sold for big bucks that year. Turns out the collector who bought the bike has collected my art for twenty years.
The Original Painting is in his collection and hangs above the bike, in Gold Canyon AZ. 2016
