1941 Indian Scout 741b V-Twin Side Valve 500cc. Imported into the Uk in 2006. Looks to have been restored to a high standard with excellent paint work! Looks very original with interesting air filter system. Runs and ride very well with everything working as it should. Comes with UK V5C registration and instruction manual. A rare bike and a great investment!

This model of the famous Indian make was designed in 1939 to be used in the US army and the armies of its allies. The configuration is much like that of its bigger brother the 750 cc Military Scout ( model 640 B), but the 500 is built lighter as regards to both frame and engine.

There are also many differences in detail. The production ran for about 6 years till 1944. In that period no significant changes were made in the 741’s specification; about 35,000 machines were made. Engine performance is about 15 HP at 4,800 rpm. Ignition is by battery and coil, ( the B in the model designation points to battery /coil ignition) weight is 450 lb, top speed 65 mph. Transmission 3 speed hand shift, tyres 3.50 x 18.
