Spirit of 1901 #4 Spring 2017
In 2016 we partnered with Indian Motorcycle to produce a magazine that dealt exclusively with America’s oldest surviving motorcycle brand: all Indian, all the time.
Smaller than A4 – a happy compromise between ungainly and too small – it was delivered to new Indian motorcycle owners and was available to buy online, but ultimately fell foul of an interpretation of enhanced GDPR regulations – the ones that mean everyone who is going to measure and monitor your browsing habits needs to inform you of the fact and seek your permission – and only ran to seven editions.
The 4th edition rolled off the press the coincide with the Chieftain’s raised hemlines – gone was the fully skirted front fender – and we took a multi-bike look at Indian’s relationship with the Wall of Death.
