The Indian FTR 1200 Is Hitting The Dirt Track

The Indian FTR 1200 Is Hitting The Dirt Track The FTR is going back to its roots. There’s one thing Indian has been excelling at for the past three years and that’s flat-track racing. The factory team, the Wrecking Crew, has been dominating the dirt oval with Jared Mees in the lead. The manufacturer scored a home run with the introduction of its new FTR 750 dirt warrior, so much so that it too everything it learned on the flat track and applied it to a street-friendly bike. Thus the FTR 1200 was born.

This 1912 61 CI Board Tracker features the Hedstrom Improved Carburetor, a Bosch magneto, Indian -stamped pedal cranks, as well as period-correct hand grips and pedals. It’s expected to fetch between $ 100 ,000 and 5,000 at this auction , but there’s also no reserve.
