    I found this picture at an estate sale and was hoping someone could ID the bike. I don't see any emblems or other writing. Thanks in advance!

    Split front fender over a leaf spring, fork truss that forms a triangle under the stem, mechanical throttle linkage, and shape of the tank- Appears to be a 1912-1917 Indian.

    The headlight seems oversized and may be a aftermarket accessory, or maybe that's just a trick of perspective in the photo(?)

    Great bike & a couple of babes, that was one lucky guy! No wonder he’s got a big smile!

    Hello Mr. B:
    Thank you so much for the information on the bike. I was starting to give up hope on anyone IDing it.
