    Identifying Your Indian Dirt Bike

    How to identify your Indian Dirt Bike:

    Do you have a Minarelli (Italian) enigine, Morini Franco (Italian), Fuji 100 (Japanese) or a Jawa engine?
    Can you find the cc stamping on the top back side of your case? This will tell the size (displacement) of your engine.
    How many gears do you have? Is it an automatic?
    What sizes are your tires?
    Does it have a decal specifying the model?
    Does your bike have lights? Does your bike look like it originally came with lights?
    Does your bike have # plates?

    Answers to these questions will help distinguish your Indian make and model. Refer to pictures on this and Indian line-up page.

    History of Indian Motorcycles

    "1970s: The End of An Era The Death of Two Legends

    Legendary motorcycle racer, dealer, distributor, magazine publisher, race promoter, author, and motorcycle manufacturer Floyd Clymer had been working to revive the defunct Indian Motorcycle brand since 1963.

    Clymer died of a heart attack in 1970 and his attorney, Alan Newman, acquired the Indian Motorcycle trademark. Newman continued to sell small bikes carrying the Indian brand name. Most of these bikes were produced in Taiwan and had displacements between 50cc and 175cc. Other units were rebranded Italian mini-bikes. Sales declined throughout the 1970s and operations ceased in 1977.

    Factory parts book for that engine from that same website^^^: http://www.indiandirtbikeparts.com/f...00K_Engine.pdf



    Little American Enduro – 1972 Indian ME100
    "One of the more basic and no-frills models from this lineup was the ME100, and while the ME had a headlight and the other necessary road-going bits — unlike its cousin, the MT100 — it was still more or less motorcycling at its most basic (+ oil injection I suppose). A simple steel frame, a thumper mill, primitive suspenders and drum brakes front and rear. Add a seat, tank, and lighting, slap an Indian logo on it and voila, ME100. The ME100 (and MT100) were powered by a Fuji F500K air-cooled, 97ccc, two-stroke single fed via a 20mm Mikuni carb (though it was supposedly replaced by a 22mm unit in ’74) and paired with a five-speed transmission, the ME100 was reportedly good for around 8hp. A surprising number of parts on the little ME were adjustable, including the foot pegs and the suspension. With a dry weight of under 180 lbs, the 97cc ME was reportedly good for as many as 55mph (with some help from the wind). .."

    I've got a ME125 for the kids and ripping around in the woods.
    Ebay and the link TNC provided are about the only parts source I know of.
