100" Indian Engines

Has anybody has any experience with the Indian 100" Power Plus engines? Power, reliability, etc... How does the mounting compare to an evo?

the bolt patern and size is the same as an evo.
and yes they have had some issues. but are a stand up mill when updated. love the looks of that bottle cap.

Yeah, I like the look of the engine also. I think that engine would look tight in a bobber. A friend of mine was talking about a dude he knows that built one out of a kit he bought through J&P. I have been looking around a little and don't seem to see much stuff out there. I am wondering why more people haven't used these motors. Thanks for the links guys, and if anybody else has any more info it would be appreciated.

There was a Power plus engine on Ebay last week, not sure when it closes bid was $3500. There's a lot of pieced together junk out there from vultures buying stuff a factor auction and piecing them together, check the seller closely since there probably the builder. Blackhawk motor works is a good source. And you can get some info at www.indian-motorcycles.com not as active a forum as here but there's good info, mostly old stuff but go to the bottom of the forms page for the new junk. 2 custom builders on the site may be able to get you started. If you find a factory mill the late stuff had most of the proplems corrected, early prodution had a list of issues, and the new factory is starting up in Charlotte N,C, and the new models are based on an inproved Power Plus 100 mill.

s/s makes a motor very similar to the indian motor. it's a 92 inch square motor. it's only available thru certain sources from i've heard. it also has the carb on the correct side instead of the way indian did theirs.

They dont sell "New Ones"..........they stopped making them in 02'.

Every power plus 100" motor produced by Indian will fail.......they have a 100% failure rate so far. The upgrades are necessary to have a reliable motor.

I have 4 of these motors in bikes and I would suggest giving Frank Aliano a call @ Blackhawk Motorworks as said before. He is in FL.....google him .
You will not find a nicer more knowledgeable person when it comes to these motors.
