Update March 2024 Finally a new IPE website!

It will be a while before it is complete, but at least you can see that the lights are still on here :-)

IPE is a small one-man shop doing basically three things with pre-1953 Indian Motorcycles:

*Consulting on Indian projects and supplying new parts for them*

*Helping to keep running Indians on the road with new parts and advice*

*Finding good new homes for the used original Indian parts that have somehow piled up over the years*

So... if you are not sure where to start with your Indian project - or if you have a running Indian with problems - or if you already know what parts your Indian needs - send me an email and I will do what I can to help.

New Indian Parts 
Last updated 26 March 2024
This page shows examples of parts I have sent to customers with various Indian models.

Together they should give you an idea of just how wide a range of parts I can supply. I have written a little about the parts in most pix.

I have many parts in stock to keep running Indians on the road, but with most Indian projects we have to dig a little deeper to figure out exactly what parts you need. 

Not everything can be in stock all the time. Planning your project helps me have the parts for each stage of the project ready when you need them.

More used parts whenever I find time for it, so check back often. 

There are also a few non-Indian parts on the page that I hope will be of help to someone.

I generally use factory numbers for the parts. It helps if we are on the same page, so to speak.

This page is mostly single new parts that I happen to have in stock, new parts I want to show, and various other interesting parts for your Indian.

Contact, Project Consulting, Mail Order and Payment information.
Ask if anything isn't clear.

After I get all the stuff above done there are some old pages to update. Among them the one for Clutch kits and a few more, with some revisions and additions. Link to the old Clutch page.

For now, here is a snapshot of the new 1940-42 Indian Four clutch kit not yet on the old clutch page. You can order one now, but they are "special order" so there is a little delivery time.

I also have most other clutch related parts for Indian v-twins. Some of them are shown on the New Indian Parts page. Ask if you need something, or if you are not sure what you need.

I also have a lot of Friends and Customers' Indians pictures to add, but the photo gallery is pretty big as it is, so the new pix will probably have to go on a separate page.

Indian Racing is another page I would like to keep - and occasionally add to (see one of my favorites above).

I have also long wanted to add some stories; both Indian Owners' Stories and my own Indian Tech Writing, but there is only me to do everything here so we will have to see about that.

For now, here is the old IPE front page with all its links to existing sub pages etc.

Most of these pages are not up to date.

Ask if you need something you don't see
- or if you are not sure what you need.

*I took most of the photos on this site myself, and have tried my best to give credit to the few I got from elsewhere. Let me know if I missed anything and I will fix it*
*In keeping with the "sophisticated ends by simple means" spirit of Indian motorcycles, the pages of this website were handmade with the HTML editor that came free with the Netscape browser back in last century. Today's whiz kid app developers will have no idea what I am talking about and that is fine :-)*
*I don't use cookies or any sneaky tracking stuff. My hosting service has to use some technical cookies to keep the website working, but I have no insight into that*
*The names "Indian", "Chief", "Scout" and others are used on this website for identification of pre-1953 models only*
*IPE is in no way associated with the new Indian Motorcycle Company. IPE only sells parts for pre-1953 Indians. For more information about the new models go here*
*In memory of my friend Erik who for years patiently listened to my talk of a new website but didn't live to see it*
