When you look at an Indian 741 B Military motorcycle you are witness to another world. It`s
a time machine from the most brutal and crucial period of the 20th century. Within the pages
of this book you`llwitnesswar and see the battlefield the 741was designed to fight on: deserts,
tropics and muddy tracks in every combat theater. It saw shelling by German 88`s, was
ambushed in the jungles of Burma, shot at by German snipers, took part in the battle ofMonte
Cassino and was there at the fall of Berlin. It`s compact and heavy like a goldbar, with a brutal
sound like an ancient roar from the past.
This book is in two parts: WAR followed by PEACE. The first part covers the service of the
Indian 741 with the military in wartime. Included in part one are images from different
battlegrounds such as NorthAfrica, Italy, France and the Pacific. It also includes images of how
present day owners preserve and celebrate the history of this iconic motorcycle.
The second part, its usage in peacetime by police forces and in civilian form as a foundation
for building twenty-first century versions of the Sport Scout, choppers, bobbers and even land
speed record breakers.
