A smaller Indian v-twin model, the 37ci (600cc) Scout, joined the existing 61ci (1,000cc) Powerplus twin for 1920. In a somewhat unusual departure, this new smaller Indian twin featured primary drive by helical gears, rather than the more usual chain, and soon gained a reputation for indestructibility: 'You can't wear out an Indian Scout,' claimed the company's advertising. In other respects the 'flat head' v-twin motor followed the successful Powerplus formula. Detachable cylinder heads were the Scout's big news for 1925 and two years later a 45ci (750cc) variant arrived, to be followed in April 1928 by the 101 Scout. The latter featured a revised 750cc engine in a new, longer-wheelbase frame, and this medium-weight sports model would prove an immense success for the Springfield firm. This 101 Scout has been fully restored, featuring a genuine speedometer, new tyres and professionally made saddlebags. Described as in generally excellent condition, the machine is offered with dating letter, numberplate authorisation certificate, expired MoT (August 2012) and Swansea V5C document.
