IT'S THE CLASH OF AMERICAN IRON --- HARLEY VS. INDIAN!
This year we're bringing back the greatest rivalry of the 20th century motorcycle scene with displays that transport you to the days of "Win on Sunday - Sell on Monday". We'll have plenty of old Harley and Indians on display which will walk you through the blood, sweat and gears of the high tech battle as each maker fought to innovate (and imitate) its rival into submission. The Viking Chapter meet is famous not only for our huge collection of motorcycles on display, but the detail and depth in our multi-media exhibits that educate, inform and entertain our visitors. There will be original magazine advertisements hailing Indian's racing prowess and Harley's early public relations campaign to position their bike as "The Silent Grey Fellow" alternative. In every aspect of two-wheeled transport, from hill climbs, flat track, touring to police mounts - the two giants fought it out to be bitter end.
