1939 Indian Sport Scout

In 1930, E. Paul and Francis Du Pont acquired large shares of Indian and reorganized the company. Despite the wide popularity of the Indian Scout 101, a 1932 decision to reduce costs by developing a common frame for multiple motorcycles resulted in the “Standard Scout,” whose weak construction drew immediate criticism by competitive riders. Two years later, Indian created a “Sport” version with a stronger two-piece frame that remained in production until 1942, after which it was renamed the 640-B for use by the U.S. Army.
