Indian Brake Shoes


I need to replace the brake shoes on my 1980 Indian. The shops I've gone to for a replacement haven't been able to match the shoes to anything that they have available. Does anyone know which currently available brake shoes would be the correct ones?

The only marking on the old ones is a little raised star.

21 Indians...... do you have any schematics?


I just bought two Indians and i am having a hell of a time finding engine schematics. I was told that the Honda PA 50 was the same engine. Is this true? If so, can I use this link to tear apart my motor worry free?
