Today marks the ten year anniversary of Indian Larry’s passing. Larry is a legend and appeared to be (I never met him) a genuine and laid back guy. He hired and mentored guys like Paul Cox and was an influence on custom builders everywhere. I recall he was once on a small show you might remember, called Biker Build Off, and he stated that a real motorcycle should have at least one spoke wheel. He also noted that he preferred motorcycles to look mechanical instead of hiding stuff, such as every wire and cable. I like that, I want my bikes to look like they are a machine.
