The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles
Indian Prince Episode: Ch.09
Does anyone know his nationality from his clothes? (it becomes easy to identify ) ...anyway this bike seems late '20s or early '30s, a little young for this movie. Was reported as a scene in Verdun, France, in 1918: Link to "imcdb.opencommunity.be" Thank you, I'll check it further Not a German, guessing from the helmet. The helmet in the pictures looks rather French (a little fireman-like, with something like a little crest on top). Thanks to your information First of all, I concentrate to french When we have to identify military clothes it's "la fin des haricots". French expression that mean something like "end of the world". Yes, it's sensible to be a french military biker. The helmet is typical of the bikers, in the beginning of the 20's century. But that does'nt mean that it's a french bike... Deep meaning expression ...It's not found easily...picture of engine looks like JAP500cc (typically, widely used engine) You won, Bebert! I checked & think it's Indian Prince (1926-28 later model, with some modification) http://www.muzej-motociklov.com/museum/exhibit/sl4/indian_prince.jpg http://www.photos.indianmotorbikes.com/25-28prince/pr004.jpg Second picture (close up of engine) is another bike, may be third picture's background bike. It can't identify yet, where is jplemoine!? Well done, as usual ch.08:
Not convinced this is an Indian Prince, this is a twin port motor, both versions of the Prince (SV & OHV) were single port motors. Not convinced about the other bikes either.
Yamaha DT125 Episode: Ch.10
Yamaha 125 DT "vieillie"...
Quite an early one though - about 1970ish. Certainly not as early as this movie is supposed to be!
Rudge Four Episode: Ch.12
It's a 1928 Rudge Four, probably a 500cc. The flat tank indicates it was built from '24 to '27, because in '28 the saddletank was introduced on this bike. But this bike also has the large 8" front brakedrum, introduced also ín '28. (Earlier models have rimbrakes) So this bike is probably an early 1928 model.
