‘We still use 1920s ma­chines’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

We started off us­ing In­dian Scouts back in 1928 and we’re still us­ing them to­day, says Ken Fox. My Wall of Death bike is a 1926 Scout. It sounds per­fect, looks per­fect and han­dles bril­liantly. Plus the build is great. You can let go of the bars as you’re fly­ing round the wall, they’re just per­fect. Mine has no rear sus­pen­sion and the front has been beefed up with an ex­tra two leaf springs be­cause of the G-force pres­sure, we don’t want it squeez­ing the springs. I’ve also added an ex­tra oil pump to help force oil through the sys­tem.
