A smaller Indian v-twin model, the 37ci (600cc) Scout, joined the existing 1-litre Powerplus in 1920, to be followed by a 45ci (750cc) variant in 1927. Introduced in April 1928, the 101 Scout featured a revised 750cc sidevalve engine in a new frame and this sporting machine would prove an immense success for the firm, so much so that its replacement in 1931 by a heavier Chief-framed model was greeted with dismay. Introduced in 1934, the Sport Scout went some way towards retrieving the Scout's reputation, featuring a lighter frame and European-style girder forks. 30.5ci (500cc) and 45ci Scouts, designated Models 741B and 640B respectively, were produced for the Allied forces during WW2's early years before the US Army switched to the ubiquitous Jeep. This 741B Scout has been fully restored to military specification, featuring professionally made saddlebags, a weapon holster and legally decommissioned machine gun. A winner of the 'Best Military' award at Stafford in June 2012, the machine is offered with Swansea V5C document.
