1927 Indian Ace
In 1923, the Hendee Manufacturing Company became the Indian “Motocycle” Manufacturing Company. Four years later the firm purchased the Ace Motor Corporation and released the Indian Ace, a luxury motorcycle that employed the Ace’s four-cylinder engine. Upon introduction of the Ace, Indian laid claim to having the “World’s Most Complete Cycle Line” with models having one-, two-, and four-cylinder engines. The following year, Indian dropped “Ace” from the name, calling it simply the Indian Four, which remained in production until 1942.
