|The 1913 Indian Twin is a three speed vehicle that boasts a V-twin engine as the driving force behind the Indian Twin and it is quite sturdy and dependable, especially in its restored state. The Indian twin has other notable parts and features such as a hedstrom carburettor, a streamlined gas tank, a dual clutch control system that can be controlled via a lever or foot pedal, large frontal and rear wheels, a leaf-spring suspension system for both the front and rear of the vehicle, an inconspicuous electrical system for the lights, and most important feature (in our opinion) the look of the bike itself.|
