Mike Wolfe's Best Pick Ever - Trove of Indians
Friday, April 26, 2013
American Pickers' Mike Wolfe is one of the biggest Indian Motorcycle fans around. He got the honor of firing up the Thunder Stroke 111 at its world debut in Daytona Beach and shares the story of his greatest pick ever in the video below involving what else - a treasure trove of Indian Motorycles.
While we wait with bated breath for the next evolution of Indian Motorcycle under its new owner Polaris Industries, we think we know of one person who’s even more anxious than us. American Pickers
Mike Wolfe is the consummate Indian Motorcycle enthusiast. He loves them – truly. Bring Indian Motorcycle
up in the topic of conversation and watch his eyes light up. But be prepared. He’s also a font of knowledge about the marque, the breadth of his understanding of the motorcycles is staggering. He knows their history like few others and can break ‘em down and build them back up with the best of them.
“I was into the bikes before I even owned one,” says Wolfe in The Big Pick
presented by Indian Motorcycle.
In The Big Pick
video, Wolfe talks to Indian’s Director of Industrial Design, Greg Brew about his greatest pick, a find so great it was “like picking folklore.” It should come as no surprise that his "best pick - ever" (and what got him in the business full time) was when he scored a treasure trove of Indians at a Pennsylvania farm, according to Indian Motorcycle.
“Indian is excited to be working with Mike Wolfe. He's going to help us relaunch this iconic brand with the passion it deserves. He is energized to ride with us into Indian's exciting next chapter,” concluded Indian on their website.
Wolfe’s enthusiasm is contagious. Should have seen him at the launch of the new Indian powerplant, the Thunder Stroke 111.
Nobody in the crowd was more stoked than Wolfe.
We enjoyed hearing him talk about The Big Pick
so much we wanted to share it with you, courtesy of Indian Motorcycle.
