Default Pop Sickle

Knowing how Pop feels about the AMA, I thought I'd try to conflict him a bit.

They are raffling off something that may even be tempting enough to get him on board:

That there is a sweet looking bobbed little feather.
And well it should be.
For the Vic fans of Indian now that it shares the same bed, Mike Tomas (Kiwi) is THE Springfield repop king. He is tooled to do anything needed to an original Hendee and, if you are a little squeamish about trusting barn iron, he can build a complete NOS Indian out of his own repop parts bin.
It is an Indian regardless the NOS parts. Kiwi holds paper to slap the Indian label on their builds. That agreement followed the Gilroy award to build new Indians and Kiwi has rights to build Indian motorcycles based on the pre 1954 (I think) patents. I don't know where Polaris sits with that but why would they make a fuss? Tomas does what he does and it ain't the same as Polaris except they both are angling for the same high dollar market.
If you go to his shop, bring a drool cup.
Will Pop buy tickies to the raffle? Maybe he's a raffle hound already. If I was to get lucky I would ride the snot out of it. I doubt the AMA would post pictures of me on it however. They might take a dim view of a period correct duster, leather cap and gauntlets, goggles, and wool jodhpurs as appropriate PPE.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

I don't think the AMA is quite the gear Gestapo that you may think they are:
