1969 Indian MM5A / Mini Mini Bambino
Along with a line of larger motorcycles, Floyd Clymer imported Italjet Mini Mini Bambino “minicycles” under the Indian name. After his death in 1970, the Indian trademark passed to Los Angeles attorney Alan Newman, who continued importing the child-sized vehicles. Also known as the MM5A, the diminutive motorbike was called a “miniaturized motorcycle” in Indian advertising. Designed to familiarize children with the Indian brand, the MM5A/Mini Mini Bambino featured a 50cc engine mated to a centrifugal clutch. Buyers could choose from three available colors.
