The Indians were made in America, and most of the parts manufacturers, who have found their way to these pages, have been in America, too. It may come as a surprise to some, that lots of high quality parts for Indians are made elsewhere in the world as well! (But it shouldn't, really. From the beginning the factory exported motocycles to all corners of the globe, and Indians enjoy a strong following in almost any country you could mention!).
In Germany there is a handfull of medium-to-large scale manufacturers of Indian parts, and a lot of individuals making each their own little piece of the puzzle. One of the most exiting specialist parts makers is Jürgen Hecker in southern Germany. Jürgen runs a 101 (& other early models) restoration business, and can supply an amazing range of parts for these bikes. I had the privilege of seeing one of his 101s and one of his 4 cylinder restoration jobs in Germany recently, and to say they were gorgeous, is an understatement! I hope to be able to bring you pictures of these world class restorations soon!
Jürgen will soon have a website of his own, but here's a small appetizer on his parts. I've added some approximate $US prices to Jürgen's in DM. Please contact Jürgen about shipping etc, or hang on for his new website! (in a month or two). Over to Jürgen! Moen
