    Hello, I have been told by earlier owner that my 1930,101 scout had chrome rims as original options.Was they delivered with chrome rims? I thought that it was only black.

    Thanks

    The leaf spring on my '31 101 is a bit tired. As a result the rocker at the front axle is level instead of being at a 30 deg. angle. So, in effect, I have no front suspension.

    A friend that professionally restores indians said I need to get a wedge for the spring assembly to get the angle restored.

    Do any of you have experience with this? Is there a wedge available, or is it a do-it-yourself item? Is this a bad thing to do, and the only option is to replace the springs?

    Please let me know!

    Thank you,

    Nick Dounias

    In the USA, I got some 101 copper head gaskets from Indian Ray, indian0148@aol.com.  They were really for a sport scout head, but I needed them in a hurry & elongated the 3 holes closest to the valves & trimmed the outside.  They worked fine all season.  I was careful to re-torque the head bolts twice - some became loose.
    I hear that Eddie.foster@tycohealth.com.au has copper gaskets that fit the 101 heads, but they are expensive.

    Hello, I just joined (embarassingly late that is as I have had my 101 for about 8 years plus now) and of course I have a number of questions. My Scout 1930 EngNo EGP857 was exported to Germany and sold through a Berlin dealer whose brass paque still features prominently on the front fender. The bike itself has had an interesting history. Reportedly it was bricked in in a Berlin celar during wwi to prevent a draft into the German army (that would have been an interesting one) only to be forrgotten. It resourfaced after the fall of the wall and I believe went from Mr Timmermann to Mr Forbes to myself. Now somewhere inbetween some of the original parts were replace (actually more like all) This means I now have a bike in as found condition that runs..... but to make it completely original I would have to replace the rare bits that were replaced.... front and rear light, handle bars, carburetor (don't believe a Linkert is good enough here), generator and magneto. ie I have a very very expensive and lengthy undertaking at hand. My questions are what were the specifications of the carb, magneto and generator that were used on German export models and where should I look also, does anyone have anything on the history of my bike. I am sure this one has been covered in the press somewhere but I havent found anything and lastly does anyone know where I can get a German front frender licence plate ;o) not much I am asking
