The doyen of the Indian marque in Sydney, VIC MABERLEY, passed away in April after a long illness. A man with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the brand as well as huge collection of rare models, Vic was known far and wide for his enthusiasm and willingness to assist others with restoration and advice. His vast shed in Sydney’s north west was a magnet for Indian enthusiasts and club groups, all of whom were welcomed with open arms. Vic’s Indian stable ranged from tiny two-stokes to the big twins, and the single cylinder Princes models from the late ‘twenties. Vic used to say, “Nobody knows everything about Indians. There are just too many detail changes between models, even within the same model in some cases.” That may be so, but Vic must have come mighty close. His story appeared in OBA 27.
