Harry Hindall was a frame maker who had emigrated from England to Southern California in the 1960s to pursue his primary occupation of working in the aero industry. His passion was motorcycles, and he developed an interest in desert racing, enduro, and motocross. Having worked making frames in the UK for Don and Derek Rickman with their Metisse brand, it was inevitable that he should make his own frame for his bike. Having campaigned the machine, various participants requested one of his frames for their machines. Consequently, he made a few one-off frames in his spare time. When his employment ended abruptly, he turned his hand to making frames on a more regular basis. These were made to accommodate a wide variety of engines, including Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki. The DT1 Yamaha was hugely successful in USA, and was an excellent choice of engine for a machine such as this.

Purchased by the owner in 2018, the Hindall appears still to be in substantially original condition. The vendor believes this is one of only a handful of Hindalls in the UK, and possibly less than 80 worldwide. He also advises us that it is in very good running order, and can happily be put to use by a new owner. A NOVA reference has been supplied for the machine if a new owner wishes to register it for the road. Documentation comprises the purchase invoice, together with a copy of a Classic Bike magazine featuring an article about Hindall, and mentioning this machine in particular.
