Clean 1980 Indian on CL

I called the guy at Camping World who is selling it. He said he'd take $1000 for it. It's very clean, low miles.

Worth at least half of that. These may have been among the worst mopeds ever made

Re: Clean 1980 Indian on CL

Don't tell the guy at Camping World that. He gave $3G in trade for it!

Oof I hope that's a joke cause these things are downright awful. Maybe to an Indian collector or something but these aren't necessarily rare or desirable

No joke!

Re: Clean 1980 Indian on CL

I bought one nonrunning for 450, sight unseen. OOps. after months I got it working and sold it goin maybe 20 for 350. That guy had it for sale 500 and i saw it again for 800, so I guess value's pretty arbitrary. It was the same model/color and at least same aesthetic condition -except not the mags. those brakes are (or were at least) hard to find.

I kinda love these but it's not super desirable

they are one of my favorite bikes except the motor, which makes them a perfect candidate for an engine swap. goathead Chris as a super awesome a35 swapped Indian that he's just about got on the road, he's just having a little trouble finding brake shoes for it

That guy obviously is an idiot if he really did give a $3k trade-in for that moped. My guess, if he did do it, he more than made it up on the price of the RV he sold the buyer.

Re: Clean 1980 Indian on CL

Indian mopeds were junk brand new. I bought a new one in my early teens. Best thing I ever did was unload the POS and buy a Pacer SS. Goodluck luck with that Taiwan crap.

general mopeds are "taiwan crap", as are a bunch of other favorites. indians aren't bad, other than that motor.
